When you see a title like that, instantly we think of the weather. And the weather IS going to change this week. But that’s not the change I’m talking about.

This gadget makes your toothpaste taste different based on the weather conditions.
You brush your teeth everyday (at least I hope you do) and you probably have a toothpaste that tastes like mint or cinnamon or has a stripe that’s supposed to make your teeth whiter (but does that really work?, I digress).¬† Now, the brilliant minds at MIT have created a toothpaste that changes based on the weather.

Something interesting is happening in the weather business in the south.¬ Two of Atlanta’s TV stations have started issuing the forecast as a number from 1 to 10 (or 11).¬ As a matter of fact, this is something that has been done for a long time on WSB Radio in Atlanta and is now [...]

I sat for about a minute trying to think of a clever title for this post, but couldn’t come up with anything clever.¬† This post is, however, pretty important.
I’ve updated the average highs and lows for Johnstown.¬† While this may not sound like much, it is because it allows us to better describe the weather.
Because the weather information used to be taken downtown and then the recording station was moved to the Johnstown-Cambria County Airport, we didn’t have the best averages.¬† The city is almost always warmer than the airport.¬† Now that the station has been at the airport for 30 years, we can get a new set of averages for Johnstown.¬† (A good climatological data set typically consists of at least 30 years of data!)
I took the highs and lows from the past 30 years as reported at the observation site and averaged each of them out.
How did this compare to what we had…¬† You’ll find out if you click into the post!

Tomorrow is Election Day and people all across the Alleghenies (and the country) will be getting out to vote.¬† While talking to a colleague yesterday, we started wondering if there was a trend or connection between the weather and voter turnout.
My predictions¬†going into this:
- When the weather is warm, the voter turnout¬†is higher.
- Rain keeps people away from the polls.
- Snow keeps more people away from the polls.
