Ā Well we are again in the raining season and the roads get slippery and dangerous. But have you ever wonder why we get rain on weekends when we all have a day off and we want fire up that barbecue? On Monday morning the sun is shining and Tuesday also and by Thursday it starts to cloud back up and on Saturday and Sunday rain again.
You may think I am crazy what I am saying, but take good look during the weekend and you may notice the same pattern.Ā There is a logical answer about that kind of weather pattern. Please read and find out the answer!
It is suggests that rain is most likely to occur on the weekend and the weather is most likely to be better during the week of Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, being the best days. One possible cause of the pattern is the "cloud-seeding effect" created by the massive flow of East Coast pollution, which also follows a well clear weekly cycle.
In examining rainfall in the Atlantic, they found no daily difference when looking at the ocean as a whole, but an evident variation for the coastal areas, with average daily rainfall rising on Thursday and into the weekend and then dipping from Sunday through the middle of the week.
The scientists at Arizona State University suspect that the link between human activity and the weather is pollution. Writing in Nature they said: "Although our statistical findings limit the identification of cause-effect relationships, we advance the hypothesis that the thermal influence of pollution-derived aerosols on storms may drive these weekly climate cyclesā€¯.
So in conclusion is scientists suspect, it is the buildup of pollution during the week, resulting in rain at the weekend.
