This little weather tool gets it right more than your meteorologist does
Know when a storm is on the way.
Forget the meteorologists. They’re perpetrators of trust issues anyway. Seriously, what other profession allows you to be completely wrong in your area of expertise and still get paid?
Thankfully, there’s other ways to learn about the day’s weather conditions. For example, this weather predicting tool called storm glass reacts to changes in the atmospheric pressure. So you’ll know when it’s going to rain before it starts.
The Kikkerland ST71 storm glass is an updated version of the classic barometer. It’s designed with crystals that react to fluctuations in the air pressure and temperature. So when a high or low pressure system floats in, the crystals will cluster or disperse in response. The barometer is clearly labeled so you’ll be able to read the day’s forecast without issue.
Plated on a beechwood base, this mini science experiment matches nearly all home decor styles. So not only is it a super helpful tool that can be used to teach kids the basics of meteorology, it’s pretty too.
This modern barometer is available through Amazon for $19.99. Stop getting caught in unpredicted showers (and listening to your weatherman).
