Yes thats right the Woodmans WeatherStick. Fantastic graphics and lo-tech answer to predicting your day. Originally from the US, the WeatherStick is generally about 40cm long which when mounted outside it will point upward with the onset of good weather (high pressure) and down as bad weather approaches (low pressure). These sticks were first used by the native Americans of the northeast USA and the Canadian east and southeast, who noticed the behaviour of dry branches prior to the arrival of weather changes. The weather stick is a rare example of a weather prediction tool which predates the mercury barometer.
