From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: This week we’re taking a look at the units of pressure – specifically the pascal! Yes, that’s standard unit for pressure, but to keep things of a similar magnitude by adding “hecto” to the front pascal. So what does this all mean? 101 tries to sort this out!
TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of September 24th.
