Ben Hawke, Mosgiel's Meteorologist

Ben Hawke, Mosgiel's Meteorologist cover page

by Claire Finlayson

When thirteen-year-old Ben Hawke says things like “precipitation” and “atmospheric pressure”, his friends groan and say, “Speak English!” Ben uses technical weather terms a lot. He finds them useful, which isn’t surprising given he writes his own weather forecasts. He even has a column in the Otago Daily Times. You could say Ben’s something of a meteorological star.
