Lesson Excerpt

What's the weather going to be like tomorrow?  We hear this question all the time.  What is weather, exactly?

When people talk about the weather, they are talking about the changes that happen in the atmosphere.  The atmosphere is the layer of air surrounding the Earth.  Changes in the atmosphere cause changes in temperature, wind, cloudiness, air pressure, and moisture.  The amount of moisture in the air can lead to rain, fog, sleet, or snow.  People need to know about these changes so they can plan what to wear, what they're going to do, and whether they need to take an umbrella.  Farmers need to know about the weather to plan when to plant or harvest crops.
