Thanks to PressureNet users in North Carolina we were able to record the drastic drop in pressure as Hurricane Arthur made landfall over the coast on Thursday night:
PressureNet gathers crowdsourced atmospheric pressure readings from barometers embedded in Android phones and makes the data available to meteorologists and researchers who are working towards improved weather forecasting. One such scientist is Cliff Mass, who runs an excellent blog on weather research.
Thank you to our users for helping us collect this exciting data. We’re glad that everyone made it through the storm unscathed.
