Weather can affect anyone, irrespective of whether rain spoils a trip to the beach or a tornado destroys a home. Ranches, farmers, airline pilots, boat captains, construction workers and many other occupations and professions rely heavily on weather information. Although weather is a rather complicated science, students will learn the basics of weather science, how to interpret weather forecasts and how to recognize local changes that take place in the weather.

Learning how to interpret cloud patterns, wind shifts, rising or falling air temperature and other local weather signs can be valuable sources of information. This program explains the various types of weather forecasts available and how to obtain them. Clouds can also tell you a lot about the weather if you know how to recognize the different formations and understand the role in weather systems. Discover how clouds are formed and the internationally recognized system of cloud classifications including, how to identify types of clouds at high, mid and low elevations.

Discover the basics of barometric pressure, how high and low pressure systems are formed and the significance of these pressure systems. Students discover how weather fronts continuously affect weather patterns and how they are tracked and shown on weather maps.

This program also covers the different types of weather maps used by the National Weather Service, weather map symbols and how meteorologists interpret them. Discover the traditional weather observations used in our daily lives including what cloud formations can tell you and how animals react to weather.
