Who predicted the weather?
In 1861 a man finally decided to put his predictions into writing and it was actually correct. Francis Beaufort and his student Robert FitzRoy worked on a new science in meteorology.

Weather forecasters take a look at surface data, upper air data,surface maps, and upper air maps to make a weather forecast.Satellite observations of weather systems are also used. Separate weather instruments used to forecast weather arebarometers (which measure air pressure) thermometers (to meas…uretemperatures) anemometer (to measure wind speed) hydrometers (tomeasure humidity) and more. It is rather difficult to predict the weather. The answer above ishow meteorologists used to try and predict weather patterns. It wasa very crude method. Today meteorologists use numerical equationsand algorithms solved by super-computers to predict the weather. Afairly good method of forecasting can come from patternrecognition. Persons who have lived in an area for a very long timecan usually tell you what it will be like tomorrow. This is fromyears of pattern recognition which is also called climatology. (MORE)
Some animals act frisky and nervous when bad weather is coming . Like when my cats are spunky, it means it's going to snow or rain. If your cat is cleaning behind it's ear, it means some type of participation is coming
Geologists are not responsible for weather forecasting.Meteorologists carry out weather forecasting and they can do thatthrough studying cloud movements, air pressure, wind speeds andseasonal readings from previous years.
The hardest thing to predict about weather according to mostscientist is winter. However, weather is generally hard to predictand most people have to keep guessing.
Although a weathervane does not show you the precise weather, you can interpret the weather from the direction of the wind. In the Northern Hemisphere wind coming from the North usually brings colder weather because it is coming from the Arctic and from the South is warmer because it comes from th…e Equator. The opposite is true for the Southern Hemisphere; North is warmer because it comes from the Equator and South is colder because it comes from the Antarctic. Also, if the wind is coming from over a large body of water, especially an ocean, the weather will be wetter and bring clouds and often rain. If the wind is coming from over land, it tends to be dryer. Even though these rules mostly apply, there are occasions on which they do not. (MORE)
Yes, you can predict the weather. Meteorologists and otherscientists have tools to help them predict 10 day weatherforecasts.
weather predicitions can help many people lead a safer life pilots need them to fly safely farmers need them to attain healthy crops sailors need them to navigate around dangerous waters coastal councils need them to evaluate the risk of flooding and then act upon this information schools… need them to be able to check up on school trips and send out closure notes (MORE)
Climate and weather are different things that are predicted differently due to the timescale. Weather prediction focuses on dynamics of the atmosphere down to very small scales - even turbulent eddies in the air. Climate prediction doesn't incorporate that because it averages out - this type of pred…iction is much more concerned with the radiation balance of the planet, for example, as well as feedbacks that accumulate over time within the system, which would never be a concern to weather forecasters.

basically i have not a clue and im in science bored and having to answer this question as we well i speak so not very helpful but there you go and by the way just google it
Weather is predicted at the scene of were it happens, or at a weather station.
Modern meteorologists use the numerical weather prediction method.This method uses mathematical smulations of the earth to predictthe weather. A number of simulations are run in different countriesworldwide, using weather observations relayed from weathersatellites as inputs to the simulations. Math…ematical simulations can be used to generate either short-termweather forecasts or longer-term predictions. The improvements madeto the simulations have allowed for many improvements in tropicalcyclone tracking and air quality forecasts. Manipulating the massive amount of data and performing thecalculations necessary requires some of the most powerfulsupercomputers in the world. Even with the increasing power ofsupercomputers, the forecast of the simulations is only six days.Factors affecting the accuracy of predictions include amount andaccuracy of observations, as well as problems in the simulationcode.

Meteorologists use satellites, radar, current weather patterns, several tools (such as weather balloons or weather planes), etc. to predict the weather.
Anemometers measure wind speed and determine wind direction. Using these sets of data, meteorologists can calculate wind pressure.
Because the satellite takes pictures of different climate conditions in different places.Then the scientists can analyse those pictures and they can give report about the weather
In The Online World It Says That, "Meteorologists use a variety ofobservation methods to first assess the initial condition of theatmosphere, including satellites and radar, automated observationnetworks, and especially 12-hourly radiosondes (sent up in weatherballoons). Using these observations, th…e future condition of theatmosphere can be predicted with the help of computer models(supercomputers), which incorporate extensive knowledge ofatmospheric dynamics and premised around chaos theory (that theatmosphere behaves stochastically). " In The Online World It Says That, "While computer models areabsolutely necessary to "crunch the numbers" given the sheer numberof calculations required, which are in the trillions, a skilledmeteorologist is still needed to interpret model output. They dothis with an understanding of the nature of the area for whichthey're forecasting, a solid foundation of atmospheric physics toknow whether a model solution is indeed feasible, and pastexperience to know what has happened in previous situations whenthe atmospheric setup was similar. Computer models are only tools(they are referred to literally as "guidance" by meteorologists inshorthand), and cannot simply be read and used without skilledinterpretation." (MORE)
It uses information based on the Doppler RADAR (invented and designed by Andrew Doppler) to predict weather so farmers will know when the best time to plant their cops would be.
Many animals are affected by the weather when it is about tochange, it messes with their senses. Birds are usually the firstones to know when the weather is going to change before others.

To answer this you need to understand what atmospheric pressure a.k.a. barometric pressure is. This is very simply the weight of the air mass that is sitting on top of your location. The pressure that this air exerts on you is generally measured in inches of mercury here in the US, other parts of th…e world may use millimeters of mercury, Torr, kilo Pascals, or millibars depending on where you live. The units used really don't matter from a weather forecasting standpoint, all that is really necessary is to know that small variations in the barometric pressure can result in big changes in the weather. Low pressure generally brings rain. In areas of low air pressure, the air is less dense and relatively warm, which causes it to rise. The expanding and rising air naturally cools, and the water vapor in the air condenses forming clouds and the drops that fall as rain. Conversely, in High pressure areas the air is more dense and relatively cool, which causes it to sink. The water vapor in the sinking air does not condense, leaving the skies sunny and clear. A good quality weather station incorporates a pressure sensor and outdoor temperature and humidity sensors. Using the information supplied by these instruments the weather station can make fairly accurate predictions of approaching weather. The weather stations that Chaney Instruments manufactures incorporate a special learning mode so that they will automatically compensate for the altitude in your location. Hopefully this helps answer your questions about weather stations, and feel free to check out weatherguys.net for future discussions on the different types of home weather products. (MORE)
yes but you have to know what you are looking for and that means studying the art of clouds and weather.
I am sorry but I don't know but do you know what are antonyms and synonyms for periscope because I need it like right now! Please answer quick! ;(
When there's a high ridge of pressure in the area for some period of time.
anonomometers - wind speed . barometers - pressure exerted by atmosphere . thermometers - temperature
In general High Pressure promotes atmospheric stablity (clear sunny weather) and warmer temperatures, while Low Pressure promotes atmospheric instablity (storminess) and somewhat cooler temperatures. In low pressure systems in the northern hemisphere air rotates in a counterclockwise direction and …moves upward. This promotes cloud formation cooler temps and sometimes storms. In high pressure systems in the northern hemisphere air rotates in a clockwise direction and moves downward (subsidence). This inhibits cloud formation and usually increases temperatures. (MORE)
let's just put it this way... no clouds=no precipitation=no protection from the sun when we need it=no life
They use historical data to predict what the weather will be like in the immediate future.
Yes, humans can predict weather with satellite technology, but it is unreliable and is often incorrect.
this is use by some fishermen. if you see one night many stars in the sky this means the ff. day will be fair while if you see cloudy the ff. day might be rainy or cloudy
It predicts the weather based on whether it sees its shadow or not. It's simply American folklore and whether it sees its shadow has no bearing at all on the next 6 weeks of weather.
It may help them by, Telling people about weather in news, Or any particular reasons if any incidents occurred like earthquake, zsuname, tornado, or hurricane
Not exactly. Local weather forecast offices work together with theStorm Prediction Center (SPC). The SPC looks at general weatherconditions across regions over periods of hours to days. They cantell if conditions are becoming favorable for tornadoes and othersevere weather. However, they cannot tell… when or where individualtornadoes will form or exactly how severe an outbreak might be.Local forecast offices use doppler radar to detect rotation withinthunderstorms. This rotation may indicate that a storm can producea tornado, and can even detect a tornadic circulation. However, notall the storms that have the potential to produce tornadoes do, andscientists still aren't sure why. Additionally, even if a tornadiccirculation is detected, the radar can't tell if it reaches theground. (MORE)
You don't ... unless you want to know what the weather will be in the near future. This is considered most critical for dangerous storms, and the early history of forecasting was for hurricanes.
Weather is one thing you can never predict accurately. So you can try to predict it, but it will never be precise.
Due to what scientists think, if you rub a cats body and you see or feel electricity, if you see that means you have the lights off, that would mean that there would be a lightning storm. Some cats act different that they usually do when a storm is coming, like laying down or in a confined spot, lik…e most animals. (MORE)
Weather forecasting has come a long way with the advent of modern technology. Where once there were handheld instruments with dials and tubes, now there are radar systems and satellites assisting meteorologists in predicting the weather. Some older instruments are still in use with the more advanced… tools, giving meteorologists as complete a picture of incoming weather systems as possible. (MORE)
NOAA has no effect on weather. It is a division of NOAA which predicts the weather.
A freeze, as in low temperatures down below the freezing mark - sure, it's one of the easier things to predict. Meteorologists rely on multiple types of computer models and their numeric output. They need to account for things like local topographic differences, soil moisture, the changing thickness… of the lower atmosphere overhead, and especially wind speed and cloud cover. It can be difficult to predict at the local scale, but over a general region they can identify days ahead when the likelihood of such an event will occur. (MORE)
A person found out how to find weather prediction in a certain process. Lewis Fry Richardson learned and described how things flows in the atmospheric system level
Because weather is a really complex event, with lots of small thing influencing each other at cross-purposes. We don't know it well enough to be able to tell exactly what will happen.
Anemometers measure wind speed and determine wind direction. Using these sets of data, meteorologists can calculate wind pressure.
Not exactly. Weather systems in the United states generally moveeastward, so a weather event that is effecting Illinois will likelyaffect Ohio in some way a few hours later. However, not all systemsmove directly east, and a system can change quickly.
with weather tools such as barometers you can also tell what kind of weather you are going to have by looking at the clouds. there is a tool that measures humidity so if it it really humid it may rain. the is also a tool that measures wind speed . yep that's pretty much how. Oh and one more thing ..…. they can track cold fronts and warm fronts and rain clouds the can pick up hurricanes and tornadoes as well. (MORE)
yes, because they use natural resources to check things such as air pressure, and what not
The old weather adage often stated is: "Red sky at night, sailor'sdelight. Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning." Therefore, ared sunset is supposed to result in dry, sunny weather the nextday.
Yes. First, making an accurate prediction requires getting good,accurate data, but there are limits to how much data we can gather.A small variation in one weather condition now can make a bigdifference later. Second, we rely on a number of computerizedforecast models to make prediction, but none of… these models areperfect, so meteorologists have to make a subjective judgement ofwhat the consensus between models is. Third, while we have a goodgrasp on the dynamics of how weather works, we still do notunderstand all it subtleties. (MORE)
Weather usually occurs in 'patterns'. Data from previous days &years actual readings are fed into the computer. The computer thenuses the data to 'guess' what the weather is likely to do - given aset of existing readings.
Pretty much yes it is difficult because it is impossible to predictweather because we don't know what will happen next because wedon't know the future.
