Monday 28 November is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Luke Howard ‘Namer of Clouds’. He is commemorated with the only English Heritage Blue Plaque in Tottenham, at 7 Bruce Grove, where he spent his final years.

His system of identifying and classifying clouds, naming them using Latin, (cumulus, stratus, cirrus, nimbus), is used across the globe. For over 30 years Luke Howard made and recorded accurate meteorological observations. The data from his weather measurements is used by urban climate scientists today.
