There are several elements that make up the weather and climate of a place. The major of these elements are five: temperature, pressure,wind, humidity, and precipitation. Analysis of these elements can provide the basis for forecasting weather and defining its climate. These same elements make also the basis of climatology study, of course, within a longer time scale rather than it does in meteorology.
- Temperature is how hot or cold the atmosphere is, how many degrees it is above or below freezing. Temperature is a very important factor in determining the weather, because it influences or controls other elements of the weather, such as precipitation, humidity, clouds and atmospheric pressure.
- Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere.
- Precipitation is the product of a rapid condensation process (if this process is slow, it only causes cloudy skies). It may include snow, hail…
