The authors performed a population-based case-control study of the association between weather and occurrence of eclampsia in Washington State. Women who were recorded as having eclampsia on Washington birth certificates from 1980 to 1983 were compared to a random sample of all women who gave birth during those years. For each woman studied, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather data were used to determine the temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, and wind speed on the date of birth at the station nearest the hospital of birth. Categorical analysis revealed that eclampsia was not associated with low temperature, high relative humidity, precipitation, or high wind speed. These results were unchanged after adjustment for race, parity, maternal age, and late initiation of prenatal care. These results do not support an association between eclampsia and weather on the date of delivery in this population.
