Will it be clear, cloudy, raining or is a storm coming? Just look at your storm glass and check its crystal status. These are the references:
- If the liquid in the glass is clear, the weather will be bright and clear.
- If the liquid is cloudy, the weather will be cloudy as well, perhaps with precipitation.
- If there are small dots in the liquid, humid or foggy weather can be expected.
- A cloudy glass with small stars indicates thunderstorms.
- If the liquid contains small stars on sunny winter days, then snow is coming.
Origin of the Storm Glass:
What is a Fitzroy Storm Glass and how does it work? Vice Admiral Robert Fitzroy (1805 - 1865) was the Captain of the HMS Beagle, which was the boat Darwin took on his famous voyage to the Galapagos Islands. He was also a pioneer in the field of meteorology and perfected numerous barometers.
His "Storm Glass" was so popular, in the 1860's it was distributed by the Royal Crown throughout the British Islands. According to Fitzroy's findings, this glass barometer forecasts the weather based on changes in the formation of crystals inside the column. If the liquid is clear, the weather will be bright and clear. If the liquid is cloudy, the weather will be cloudy as well, perhaps with precipitation.
If there are small dots in the liquid, humid or foggy weather should be expected. A cloudy glass with small stars may indicate thunderstorms. If the liquid contains small stars on sunny winter days, expect snow. If there are large flakes throughout the liquid, it should be overcast in temperate seasons or snowy in the winter. Crystals at the bottom
indicate frost. Threads near the top mean that it will be windy.
