Weather Then and Now

Let’s just say that, for some reason, you wanted to know the weather conditions on a particular date in history, in a particular location in the US. I’m not sure why you might want to know this information, but just play along for the moment. If you really wanted this information, what would you do? In this age of instant access to information, it should be available online, right?

I was so excited this morning to discover that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has a searchable, online database that gives FREE data. You can enter a location, a date range, and your e-mail address, and they will send you the weather data for that date and place! For free!

Isn’t technology great?

So, if for some reason, you wanted to know the weather conditions in Greensboro, NC on February 1, 1960, you could find out.

Now, of course, the question for you is – why does eduJamesE care about this? Some of you already know, but if you don’t know, you should be able to make a reasonable guess.
