Nate's Weather World
Welcome to my Weather World.  Here you will find a bunch of weather data and observations, random pictures, and links to my other personal pages and other weather-related web sites.  I maintain two weather stations:  LaVale (between Cumberland and Frostburg) MD and Westmont (just west of Johnstown) PA.  I am an official observer for the Atlantic Coast Observer Network (ACON) and also the Community Collaberative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS).  Enjoy...
A funnel cloud over Haystack Mtn on June 2, 1998.  The funnel touched down twice in the county and later an F4 twister ravaged the nearby Frostburg area with estimated 210 mph winds.  Photo was taken from the front of Duncan Photo Studios in LaVale.
A whopping 28 inches of snow falls from the President's Day Blizzard (Feb 15-17) 2003.  This photo can also be found in the February 2003 ACON report (see below for ACON link).
Left:  Lightning struck this large spruce tree right in front of my parents' house in Johnstown, PA on Aug. 8, 2005.  Lightning from the same storm system struck four area motorcyclists and killed one.  They were seeking refuge under a tree.
