When weather gets bad, it’s no longer “weather” but instead “un-weather”, being the definition for Unweder, meaning a storm.
New Zealand is the only country on earth that contains every type of climate.
Wind Chill – Reference to the Wind Chill Factor, increased wind speeds accelerate heat loss from exposed skin, and the wind chill is a measure of this effect. No specific rules exist for determining when wind chill becomes dangerous. As a general rule, the threshold for potentially dangerous wind chill conditions is about -25℉ Wind … More Wind Chill, Wind Chill Factor
The horizontal motion of the air past a given point. Winds begin with differences in air pressure. Pressure that is higher at one place than another sets up a force pushing from the high toward the low pressure. The greater the difference in pressure, the stronger the force. The distance between the moving air is … More Wind
Why not we just define weather in general? The state of the atmosphere with respect to wind, temperature, cloudiness, moisture, pressure, etc. Weather refers to these conditions at a given point in time (e.g. today’s high temperature), whereas climate refers to the “average” weather conditions for an area over a long period of time (e.g. … More Weather
Very Windy – 30 to 40 mph winds. Wind Advisory – Sustained winds 25 to 39 mph, and or gusts to 57 mph. Issuance is normally site specific. However, winds of this magnitude occurring over an area that frequently experiences such winds.
Same as Variable Wind Direction; a condition when The wind direction fluctuates by 60℉ or more during the 2-minute evaluation period and the wind speed is greater than 6 knots The direction is variable and the wind speed is less than 6 knots
When used to describe precipitation (for example ‘scattered showers’). Area coverage of convective weather affecting 30%-50% of a forecast zone(s). When used to describe sky cover, 3/8 – 4/8 (sky cover is measured in eighths) of the sky covered by clouds. In the U.S. weather observing procedures, this is reported with the contraction “SCT”.
