Study Shows Thunderstorm Activity Highest at Mid-Week

It sounds like an old wives' tale, but it's true: rain and thunderstorms are "bigger, more intense, and more frequent in the middle of the week than on weekends."

The answer? Pollution of course. According to Environmental Protection Agency numbers, "particulate emissions peak in the middle of the workweek." More particles in the air mean more stuff for moisture to coalesce upon, thus more rain.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
