The Trolley picked up the third grade class at each school in the district The purpose of the trip was to make students aware of career possibilities available in and around the community. by SYl.VIV MARTIN Was all this due to a subversive plot from Canada? You're close, read on. First, is this the heaviest rainfall 1 on record for the month "" of May? In a normal Ohio May there are 3.55 inches of precipitation. At Akron Canton so far, this month's total is 5.92 inches. We are not yet in the top ten rainy Mays. In 1956, four months before the first transatlantic telephone cable went into operation, May brought 9.56 inches of rain. The minimum occurred in 1977 with 1.05 inches of rain. Actually we have had steady, but not more rain. What has caused this depressing, eternal downpour? Canada yes, subversion, no. We can blame not the Canadian people, but rather the powers in high places, high places of air pressure. The nearly stationary area of low pressure over Eastern Canada one, pulled unstable air out of Canada, resulting in cloud cover over eastern Ohio and two, picked up moisutre off the lakes resulting in frequent rain. This is called lake effect. The intensity of rain is due to the strength of vertical air currents. Strong air currents hold water droplets aloft longer, where they collide and emerge into bigger droplets. The longer they are held aloft the bigger the droplets get. Weak air currents cannot hold the droplets, so as soon as the air condenses, the condensation must fall, meaning light rain. What happened to our rain last summer? The 1988 June and July dry spell was caused by the Bermuda High, a stationary high pressure system normally off the southeast Atlantic coasts, being displaced westward into Kentucky and Tennessee. In its normal posi- > tion the Bermuda High pulls warm, moist air out of the gulf which results in afternoon thunderstorms. Last summer as it was displaced westward, the high pulled air out of the southern plains . resulting in hot and ' dry air during June and July. Howver, dry and hot as if may have been, last summer was the first year in history with not one confirmed tornado in Ohio. Air moves. If air came in visible colors we would see a kaleidoscope of mountains arjd valleys, moving, rising, falling, building. In ■. addition to the steady rain,, this May has brought., us a 'few severe thunderstorms. Have the Russians invented a secret weather making machine to defeat us in the race through space? Not the Russians. To have a thunderstorm, air must be lifted. To lift air you need heat, humidity and a lifting mechanism. Warm, buoyant air may be forced upward by the wedgelike undercutting of a moving cold air mass or a mountain slope. Is there ever a thunderstorm without that dreaded lightning? No way. Why even Job knew that when he wrote of dividing a "...way for the lightning of thunder". A flash of lightning causes the air around it to expand violently causing the sound waves we call thunder. Because the speed of light is about a million times that of sound we see a lightning bolt first. By counting the number of seconds between lightning and thunder and dividing by five, we can estimate the distance (in miles) to a lightning stroke. Lightning is an effect of electrification within a thunderstorm. Interactions of charged particles produce an intense electrical field. The electrical potential can be as much as 100 million volts. A lightning bolt can reach 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit, five times hotter than the surface of the sun, and yes, lightning can strike the same place repeatedly. If you are caught in one of these storms at a park or woods, don't run under the trees to get dry. Trees draw lightning. Our weather is monitored and reported by nearly 400 of NOAA's (National' Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) National Weather Service facilities. This is a network of surface and upper air stations, weather radars and earth orbiting environmental satellites. NOAA currently operates two polar orbiting and two geostationary satellites that monitor conditions over the entire globe. Adaptations of zone forecasts for metropolitan areas, cities and towns are issued by the 52 forecast centers and 240 Weather Service Offices from 48 hours to as far as ten days ahead. Farmers depend on NWS forecasts for planting, harvesting and herbicidal application decisions. Aircraft pilots must know weather conditions enroute. Fishermen and ocean shippers require information to avoid storms and save fuel, not to mention state, county and city government managers who must dispatch road clearance crews and operate schools safely during snow emergencies. Hurricane offices and river forecast centers around the nation are on year round alert for clangorous' storms. NOAA, also provides a tsunami warning system with ■- centers in Hawaii and Alaska to. warn of the approach of these deadly earthquake generated ocean waves. Be thankful, that in the Akron Canton area, May only brought rain.
