Astronomy Weather

Weather is extremely important to astronomers. After all, if the sky is cloudy there is nothing to look at. Beyond clouds we care about atmospheric stability (seeing) and overall water content in the atmosphere at all altitudes above us (transparency). Below you can find two unique forecasts specifically for astronomers in Lima, Ohio. Clicking on either forecast will take you to the web site where the forecasts are created.
