Used years ago by seafarers to predict approaching storms, this historical device responds to atmospheric fluctuations to forecast the weather. No need to tune into the news to see the next day’s forecast, just look at this Cloud Weather Station. The traditional way to forecast the weather with a modern twist!
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:
Made from high quality glass with a beech wood base, it makes for an attractive and practical desktop display, allowing the observer to forecast the possibility of clear skies, wind, snow, storms or rain. The perfect gift for those hard to buy for!
