Wind systems transport atmospheric materials such as water vaporfrom one place to another. Through its constant motion, temperaturechanges are felt in different parts of the world, which in turncauses variations in weather within climate zones.

How do satellites help in forecasting weather conditions?

Satellites above the atmosphere can get a clear, big picture of Earth's cloud formations. By analysing these cloud patterns, meteorologists can forecast how these clouds will change and move, and predict the weather, be it rain or shine, for many areas. For example, hurricanes can be easily spotted (MORE)

How do you get digital reception by antenna with a digital TV?

Can the weather affect television network satellites?

Yes microwave signals from geostationary satellites are attenuated as the signals pass through rain and snow storms. The TV picture pixellates and freezes during heavy downpours. The signal strength at the dish can be monitored by selecting 'signal test' on the satellite installation menu via the re (MORE)

Will snow on the satellite dish affect reception?

A satellite dish relies on signals from a satellite to operate. As the signal must pass through the atmosphere, weather conditions can sometimes adversely affect the signal strength. Snow, rain, dust are all capable of disrupting the reception of many small satellite dishes. The bigger the dish, th (MORE)

Does wind affect reception on cable tv?
