Weather is one of many types of events or phenomena that occur in the Earth’s atmosphere. The layer in the Earth’s atmosphere where most weather events occur is the troposphere. A person who researches weather is a meteorologist and went to school to study meteorology. Meteorologists can study, track, and predict weather using several different types of technology. For example, they use pulse-Doppler radar to find and track different types of weather events and metrics. Meteorologists play an important role in society by providing valuable information on weather conditions and climate change.

Weather plays an important role on this planet, but weather can also be extreme, violent, and deadly. It’s important because weather is the force behind precipitation (rain, snow, etc.). Without precipitation, our water cycle couldn’t function, making it difficult for life on this planet. Weather can also be violent and create events that can cause extreme damage and loss of life. Examples of violent weather are hurricanes and tornadoes. Both can cause billions of dollars of damage and create kill thousands of people in a single event. In this category you’ll find tons of facts for quite a few different weather events.
