New Exhibit: Daily Weather Maps
The current exhibit outside of the Schwerdtfeger Library highlights the non-technical weather information on the reverse of some Daily Weather Maps published by the National Weather Service (NWS). Publication of the Daily Weather Maps dates back to 1891, with the maps in this collection ranging from 1954—1969. The images and information on the maps were developed for educational purposes and to appeal to general public interest. NWS disseminated information in this way on weather and recreation, public service announcements regarding catastrophic weather events, and methods by which weather data are collected. For more information, visit the Schwerdtfeger Library blog post on our Daily Weather Maps exhibit.
