I think we can all remember anticlones/depressions from each year we go by. There is no harm in using local case studies. Job done.

i'm sure i could word it differently!.. The trend of the elderly dying due to dehydration increased significantly in France due to the tradition of the residents in the north departing to the south for the summer weeks, which meant that a percentage of the elderly were left unattended, and, as a result, the unfortunated deaths of some occured...sounds a bit better

Ha! My revision notes? well im a mine of useless information, but seriously i have to engage with the iformation on a human level if you get me or i don't take notice!:p:

oh and Lynnie, i think [my opinion so therefore not official] that synoptic charts might come up this year, they haven't for absolutely ages and they make a point about them in the syllabus

For edexcel b I am I correct to say we don't actually have to know the synoptic symbols? I think we just need familiarity with them as they will provide them in a key in an exam yes?

Anyway for all those that need help with interpreting synoptic charts and anything to do with weather and climate the UK Met Office site is absolutely brilliant http://www.metoffice.com/education/higher/index.html
They also have great case studies for both anticyclones and depressions.
