Help needed from people not in the UK- something for my class

I teach primary school children and one of our geography units this term is about connecting with the world where basically we have to communicate with someone in another country and find out about the weather there etc. Ideally I should do it with another school but I just don't know where to start with that so I thought I could do it with individuals instead! If there is anyone out there who doesn't mind sending me
- daily preferably or every few days reports to what the weather is like where you live- this would be for a week or two beginning this week. The 'report' would only need to be brief ie an indication of temperature, what you see and what it feels like
- a link to your local newspaper if possible so we can get a feel of the area you live.and ...um thats it, I would be really grateful!

You wouldn't have to give your name or anything like that and in return I would be very grateful My kids may like to type you a thank you letter so if I could have a way of emailing you that would be great too!

My plan is to have a map on our wall where we track the different weathers around the world on a daily basis for a week or so. Sorry for the long post!

How old are your students? I teach 2nd grade (7 and 8 year olds), and this sounds like a fun project. I'll do it!
Email me at RobinsBlog@gmail.com and let me know where to send the info.
