Weather Predictor Storm Glass
Pick this product and you’ll no longer have to rely on the weatherman to notify you if there’s a storm on its way. But this storm glass isn’t really a 21st century invention, as it’s been used since the 19th century, and reliably so.
As the name suggests, the Storm glass is designed to predict if there’s a storm headed your way so that you take the necessary precautions. How does it do this? The glass fills with a transparent solution made up of several chemicals.
As the weather changes, so does the solution. The mixture crystallises depending on the weather condition. You’ll find the temperature and humidity reading shown on the base of the glass.
Other than using it to predict the weather, some users realised that this Storm glass also serves well as a decorative piece. And yes, why not kill two birds with one stone? Use the glass for its primary purpose as well as decor. That makes it an ideal gift too.
As for the downsides, unfortunately a few customers found that it doesn’t always work as expected. Some users note that the contents of the glass don’t change colour at all. Give it time though because in some instances it simply requires acclimatisation. After that it becomes a functional and attractive centre piece in any room.
