FOLLOW-UP: Detecting Weather Patterns in Pennsylvania, Welcome Station NMPA!

We have recently observed the movement, intensity and paths of a few 2018 hurricanes.  Ground motion, which is measured by a seismograph, can be detected as a storm approaches land fall and then moves across the States.  (See TXESP’s example from 2017 Hurricane’s Season —>>click HERE).

When the air pressure, wind speed and temperatures changes, we can observe the combined affect on the ground measurements in a seismogram.  Look at this snapshot from our friends in Newtown, PA who operate Station NMPA, recorded on an AS1 educational seismograph, can you estimate what the weather pattern is doing today (November 15, 2018???) compared to weather in Texas?
