Meteorologist Ben Gelber, a native of East Stroudsburg, provides the first comprehensive survey of 250 years of recorded weather in Pennsylvania. He reports on noteworthy weather happenings by category (snowstorms, rainstorms, cold and heat waves, thunderstorms, and tropical storms) and places them in historical context.
Throughout the book, Gelber defines meteorological terms and explains what creates weather events. The book features appendices and tables containing useful references for average temperatures, precipitation, snowfall, and climate data. It also provides a brief history of the weather watchers who contributed to the state’s meteorological records since the late 18th century.
