The Storm Glass Barometer came into general use in the early 1700s. Sailors attached this instrument to the masts of their ships and by interpretation of the constantly changing crystal formations, relied upon it to forecast good weather and foreboding conditions at sea. The crystals in the glass respond to air pressure and atmospheric fluctuations to accurately predict the latest weather conditions.
How to Predict the Weather:
- Clear liquid: Bright and clear weather
- Cloudy liquid: Cloudy, possible thunderstorms & rain
- Small dots in the liquid: Humid or foggy weather
- Large flaky crystals: Cloudy skies, snow in winter
- Threads of crystals at the top: Windy weather
- Crystals at the bottom: Frost may be coming
