How important is the weather forecast to us

Weather

How will be the weather? The weathercock is made of metal and is placed on roofs. It shows from which direction the wind is blowing.

The weather is the state in the sky. Around the earth there is a shell of air, the atmosphere. With weather we mean what happens in this atmosphere, in a certain place and at a certain time. The climate, on the other hand, says whether it is usually warm or cold in a place, on average for many years.

Weather includes wind, storms, rain, snow and much more. It all comes about through the sun. The heat of the sun over the sea causes the water to evaporate and the moisture to rise into the air. This will later become clouds. Wind arises from the fact that in some places there is warmer air than elsewhere.

When someone speaks of good weather, one usually thinks of sunshine. For farmers, for example, it is important that the weather changes. In agriculture you sometimes need sunshine, but sometimes also rain, so that the plants get enough water.

Because the weather is important to a lot of people, they have always wanted to predict it. Today it does its own science, meteorology. Almost everywhere in the world there are weather stations that measure wind, rain and other things. With this knowledge, you can calculate quite well for the next few days where it will rain, for example, and when. The word weather means the weather in a certain period of time in a certain area.
