Puerto Lopez de Micay, a small town near the coastline of western  Colombia, may be a new contender for the wettest inhabited place in  the world.  Between April 1960 and February 2012, an average annual rainfall  of just over 507 inches has been recorded at the weather  observation station...
That's a very broad description. Some places have a lot of ice andsnow in winter, others have it most or all of the time. Nothingwill grow under permanent ice and snow. In the tundra, where onlythe top couple of inches of soil thaws in the brief summer, youtend to get only simple mosses. In places...
Hot Ice, Sodium Acetate, is made from vinegar and baking soda.
This question alludes to a common misconception. Warm and cold air  do not have magical properties that let on "hold" more water vapor  than the other. The answer lies in the dew point temperature (DPT).  At 90 degrees a parcel of air can have a DPT of 90 degrees thus  allowing a greater volume...
   High Temp:  26.1°F *      Low Temp:  10°F      Average Temp:   16.9°F  (  24 )     Dewpoint:   4.4°F  (  24 )     Sea Level Pressure:  1031  mb  (  24 )     Station Pressure:  997.3  mb  (  24 )     Visibility:  14.8 ...
There is technically not a 'Rainy Season' for Alaska, as Alaska's  Summer's are only slightly rainier than the rest of the US. May is  relatively dry, with only a 25% chance of rain, but as the Summer  progresses, the likelihood of rain increases, as in Autumn, the  average chance of rain on any...
Definitely not under a tree, lamppost, or power lines. If you are  stuck outdoors, a car is one of the safest places to be. Because of  the rubber tires, you can't be struck as long as you are inside it.  Indoors, stay away from the windows in case a tree is struck and  falls onto your house.
The rotation causes the days, 24 hour periods  of light and dark based on your location on the Earth. The rotation  is important because without rotation of the earth, we would not as  easily be able to tell, or keep track of time. What we consider to  be the passage of time- 1 minute, 1 hour, 1...

About 90'' of potatoes on the coastal regions.
Grandeur happenings hath become in thy absence. People now come out  of the caves and use this invention (that Al Gore tries to take  credit for), called the internet. Go to this thing called "Google."  If you don't know what "Google" is, just Google it. Type in  weather. Click on a weather site...
well i live in ramallah,palistine the weather here is not really that cold its like in the 70s or high 60s there might be a slight chane of snow in the begging of february
They do not. Glacierelectric is simply the name of a company.
Humans burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is causing global warming. Any warming of the earth will lead to changes in climate. Scientists predict this will mean that storms, floods, droughts and other weather events will happen...
more likely during the spring or summer
The water is a better ground than land, so it finds the water near the islands
Atlanta in May has the most rainfall in Georgia.
some lidgit scienist who iscovered that salt lowers the melting  point of ice and decided to sprkle it on roads
Here are the ones that I can find records for:    1972-1973  1982-1983  1986-1987  1991-1992  1994-1995  1997-1998  2002-2003  2004-2005  2009-2010  
No one really invented it. For many years, salt has been known to  lower the freezing point of water. This happens when the salt's  ions dissociate in water. The act of lowering a freezing point (or  raising a boiling point) is called water's colligative property.  Generally speaking, the more...
No, the only thing that will happen is the ice/snow beginning to  melt.
Condensation of water vapour.
The pasque flower blooms in the spring and the summer.
The distance between Houston, Texas, Usa and Tampa, Florida, Usa is  approximately 1,266 km or 787 mi.   To reach Houston, Texas in this distance one would set out from  Tampa, Florida bearing 283.2° or WNW and follow the great circles  arc to approach Houston, Texas bearing 277° or W .  ...
The top of the atmosphere is not well defined. Rather, the gases  (primarily nitrogen and oxygen) comprising the atmosphere gradually  thin the higher one goes. Air pressure is 100 kPa at sea level  (14.7 psi) and falls to 50 kPa (7.25 psi) about a mile above sea  level. Half the weight of the...
Its caused by the inclination of the Earth's axis of rotation to  the plane of its orbit round the sun. Thus the longest daylight  time is on the 21 of June and it slowly decreases until it is the  shortest on the 21st of Decemberr and then it starts to increase  again.
The average precipitation per month in Brazil is 1761 mm
You have to get special access to the scripts from the creators/company. They do not just put movie scripts out into the public for multiple reasons. Your best bet but highly unlikely way is to contact the company that made the film. You need to state WHY you would like the script and HOW you will...
The laws of thermodynamics tell us to expect observable changeswhen we perturb (change) the inputs or conditions of theenvironment in this case, the earth. What we put into the air, howwe change the surface through logging and agriculture, and what wedump into the ocean can all wind up altering the...
  == weather in Brooksville ==   What was the weather on January nineteenth 2007   in Brooksville, Florida?   == weather in Brooksville ==   What was the weather on January nineteenth 2007   in Brooksville, Florida?
The answer is convection currents: the upward movement of warm air and the downward movement of cool air.
It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipes  on the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find a  particularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes)  you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor vent  is the equivalent to a...
Light, fluffy snow may way about 7 pounds per cubic foot. Average  snow may way about 15 cubic foot. Drifted compact snow may way 20  pounds or more.
Trees stop the wind carrying rainy cloudy. where that wind stopped, it rains. so cutting trees or deforestation is to prevent rain in your region.
It depends on the context. . For pneumatic systems, Pounds per square in (PSI) or Bars (orofficially, MegaPascals, MPa), where 1 Bar is "Standard"atmospheric pressure at mean sea-level at 20ºC. . For weather, milliBars (mBar), because weather systems arevariations of no more than a few tens of...
The two factors influence one another since air is the key  relationship between them: the rate of motion of air and the degree  of hotness or coldness of a substance.
Since lightning is an electrical current, normally in a  thunderstorm, little pieces of ice way up in the cloud collide  together fast and hard, making an electrical charge, which then  eventually makes an electrical current that is known as lightning.
areas of rising air and low  pressure. When air rises it cools, and the moisture it contains  condenses out as clouds, which eventually produce precipitation.
yes it can just like almost every thing else that is a gas
Helium these days, for cost reasons, but hydrogen was primarily  used in the past because it's a lighter gas.   For more information, check the related link below.
St Martin in the Bull Ring, Birmingham is a parish church of the  Church of England. By 1808, the church spire had been struck by  lightning three times.
They need to know of the potential for storms and fog. String winds  and large waves from storms can sink, or capisize a boat, or cause  it to run aground. In a fog, a boat tuns the risk of colliding with  something. Sailors rely on weather forecasts to avoid these  hazards.
325 degrees Fahrenheit equates to 162.8 degrees Celsius.
No, currently there is not a second season of nana.
Low pressure area that can be a typhoon
any where a factory is producing smoke that contains a gas whichproduces an acid when combined with water. Carbon-dioxide does, butvery weakly. The main "acid rain" producer is Sulphur Dioxide,dissolving in water to form sulphurous acid.
 If you were a US civilian living during World War II, which  government action would have influenced your everyday life  most?  
1" of rain is roughly 10" of snow, depending on conditions. So, 5" inches of rain would be 50" of snow or 4' 2".
The first day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere -- where you'll find the Antarctic continent -- is June 21.
the answer is clear. clear is the real color of snow, as it is colorless, like ice crystals. \\
During condensation, the water vapor in the air condenses  into a cloud.
The ozone molecule in found in the ozone layer. It is an allotrope  of oxygen molecule.
When water flows down a hill across the Earth's surface, it takes  with it dirt, grass, rocks, and other small surface debris. This  can lead to erosion after time.
it affects your dress is when its winter you cant wear t-shirts.
Snow happens during the winter months in Ireland. Normally Ireland does not get much snow and it mainly falls on high ground, and does not last long on lower ground.
Convection currents. Cold air is more dense than hot air so it  sinks and warm air is less dense so it rises. It repeats over and  over again and causes wind.
He's from US and mixed spanish and filipino.
yes, but it will melt in a couple of hours.
Probably not . Most fluids are not very compressible at all. I doubt there are any fluids, flammable or not, that are much more compressible than water. Maybe 50% more compressible (at best a factor of 2), but I very much doubt there are fluids that are 3-4 times as compressible as water. Gases on...
There are too many variables involved. What is the rate of heat being applied to the pan? How efficient is the heat transfer to the water? How big is the cup, an actual cooking measurement of a cup of one of those massive cups for coffee?
A cold front would likely be a front that would produce hail and tornadoes in an area because cold fronts are different than warm fronts. Cold fronts are usually fronts that cause storms and if they have the right recipe it could produce damaging winds, hail and sometimes if it's very strong,...
Clouds are one of the big unknowns about global warming as they can have a range of effects, warmer temperatures caused by global warming will result in higher rates of evaporation and therefore will result in higher cloud cover. in turn higher cloud cover can increase night time temperatures...
Celsius = (Fahrenheit-32)/1.8C = (F-32)/1.8 For 100 degrees F: C=(100-32)/1.8 C=68/1.8 C=37.8 F
Because this is the biggest one in our history. A whole country, event hough it's small, is in ruins. There is no infrastructure working or anything. Everything has to be rebuilt from the ground, starting all over. Not even the tsunami whiped out a whole country.
