Pip gets regular weather reports so she can plot the best course and know what to expect. But if these reports stopped coming through, how could she predict the weather based on what she can see around her?

Land?

If you can see land you’re close enough to get a weather effect. An onshore sea breeze in the day where the land is warm and the sea cooler.

For the Birds!

Look for the animals - they sense things! When air pressure is falling due to pending storm, you can see birds flying low. An upcoming storm causes pain in bird’s ears. If they are flying high it indicates mild weather.  In the hours leading up to strong thunderstorms and rain seagulls fly around coasts to look for shelter.   Don't forget the animals on the ground (if she can see any) before massive rainwater rises on the ground, turtles look for higher ground & ants build tall hills.

The clouds.

For example...Cirrus clouds, usually means there are some strong winds coming.

The wind direction.

If Pip stands with her back to the wind, a low pressure should be on her left side and a high pressure should be on her right (Northern hemisphere)
