Black Forest Weather HouseBefore weather forecasting was common, weather houses like this traditional Black Forest chalet were popular. The weather house reveals the weather with its hair hygrometer and thermometer.
When the air is moist (high humidity), a hair inside the house expands and lets the man come out of the door indicating bad weather. If the air is dry (low humidity), the hair shrinks, pulling the man in and letting the woman come out of the house, indicating good weather.
The thermometer shows the temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius. Hand made of wood in Germany.
