The Whatever the Weather Puzzle

It's topical... in fact, when isn't discussing the weather!

To solve this puzzle, you need to look at our selection of ‘extreme weather photos’ and then complete the sentence or statement that accompanies each picture; just like an ‘I-Spy with my little eye...’!

Each clue has one or more shaded letter boxes which then need to be transferred over to the Answer Grid. You will then be able to decipher our secret message and work out the final answer!

Step 1

Fill in the missing letters for the following six photo clues.

We have given you an example to get you started. On the below image the clue could be 'Two   B_ _ _   H _ _ _  B _ _ _ _"

Any ideas? 

The answer can be seen below....

The answer would be 'Two Blue Hair Bands'!

Step 2

Once you have found and completed all of the sentences, transfer the shaded letters from all of your answers to their respective place in the main Answer Grid. It is important that you put the right letter in its correct place, shown by the number below each letter.

Step 3

To reveal the Secret Message, take each set of 5 letters in the Answer Grid and write them downwards in a column in the Code Box. Do that with all the letters and you should have a grid of 5 x 5. Then read across this grid and the secret message will be revealed.

Now, let's get started!
All of the images can be seen below along with the individual clue answer grids, the main Answer Grid and the Code Box. To make it easy for you to record your answers though, we have a downloadable document for you to print out and write on - the images are still best viewed on screen however, (especially if you want to save your printer ink!).

Two easy ones to get you going, then it gets a bit tougher!

    • Well done Wendy! There are lots of other people who have posted comments as to what the answer is. We haven’t publicly shown these however as we do not want to ruin the puzzle for those who have not yet done it. You are all pretty much right though, and we will include you in the prize draw!

  • Enjoyable puzzle thanks. A stroll in the (rain sodden) park for the likes of me.
    And I also deduce that there are no Bikers at Treasure Trails. Clue 5, by definition, is a scooter!
    \”Watson?! Get us two train tickets to Cornwall. There\’s twelve inches afoot!\”

  • Really enjoyed doing this. Printed it off for when hubby and other family members returned from walking the dog, but middle son and myself finished it between us. Very clever. Got us looking at the main weather bits and really it might have been tiny bits on the edges that were important – good fun and got me and one of my awkward age boys talking for a while – thank you.
    We think the answer is: ******** (we’ve blanked this out so we don’t spoil it for anyone else – you are right though Theresa and Robert – well done! Aaron) 😀

    • Fantastic feedback thank you Theresa and Robert – delighted to hear that you enjoyed the puzzle. Hopefully your recent Trail also got you and the boys talking for a while 🙂

  • We have drawn the 5 winners at random. Congratulations to Jean Cawston, Kathleen Johnson, Katherine Langford, Abigail Shaw and Steve Westwood. We have emailed you with a voucher code for a free Treasure Trail!

    Don’t worry if you have missed the deadline for entering the competition as the fun is still in solving the puzzle!

    On submitting your answer you will be told if you are correct or not. 🙂
