Weather Forecasting by Simple Methods

Nature volume 82, page 307 (13 January 1910) | Download Citation



THE aim of the author is to provide the means for a single observer “to answer the question ‘When will it rain?’ in a simple and intelligible manner” without the aid of instruments except a barometer, this, however, being regarded as optional, and not necessary. The methods recommended are based mainly on observations of the size, thickness, extent, height, colours, and forms of clouds. Different aspects of cumulus, cirrus, and stratus cloud are discussed in relation to the weather to be subsequently expected, and isolated examples taken from the author's observations at Nottingham are quoted.
