Theres no doubt about it: weather plays a big role in our lives. But what exactly is weather, and what causes it? Why is it sunny one day and cloudy the next? What are hail and fog? Find out how events that occur miles above Earths surface produce different types of weather. Simple experiments give a handson approach to studying sunlight, air temperature, and atmospheric pressure. Also included are directions for making meteorological instruments, including a precipitation gauge and barometer. There may be no way to control the weather, but you can find out how to predict weather events and how to prepare for them.
