Nate's Weather World
Welcome to my Weather World.  Here you will find many data and observations, photos and links
to my personal pages and other weather-related web sites.  I run and maintain data for two
weather stations:  LaVale (between Cumberland and Frostburg) MD and Westmont 1W (just
west of Johnstown) PA.  I am an official observer for the
Atlantic Coast Observer Network
(ACON) for LaVale and also the Community Collaberative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS)
for Westmont 1W.  I am the county coordinator for Somerset and Cambria Cos, PA.  I am
officially Skywarn Certified and am a active member of the American Meteorological Society
and the National Physics honor society.  Scroll down for data, observations, reports and links.  
Enjoy your visit!

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.

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.

NATE'S WEATHER DATA
*Many recent months' data are currently undergoing intensive QC
measures to estimate for missing temperature data, due to the failure
of the Davis Vantage Vue station at Westmont 1W in November 2013.*

Observers for the LaVale station from January 1992 to July 2004 are Nate, Steve and Sara Mullins.  From
August 2004 to August 2007, former neighbors Charles Orlick and David Drewery took the data and
observations.  From September 2007 to present, Scott Lohr, who lives next to the previous observers, has
been taking the data and observations.  Since July 2004, the former neighbors should be credited for the
observations and data.  I am still responsible for compiling the data and reports.
