The Weather of 1911

AFTER my letter on the above subject (NATURE, January 11) had been posted, it occurred to me to investigate to what extent temperature deviations in Egypt are opposite to those in England, and for this purpose I compared the annual mean temperatures at Abbassia (near Cairo) with those for England S.W. and South Wales (Weekly Weather Report, 1908, p. 429). This district was selected because Dr. W. N. Shaw, F.R.S. (NATURE, vol. lxxiii., 1905, p. 175), had already compared rainfall in this region with wind velocity at St. Helena, and I had compared the same rainfall with the volume of the Nile flood (Quart, Journ. Roy. Met. Soc., xxxvi., 1910, p. 341).
