Why do they call weather weather?
There are a number of continental words of similar spelling and pronunciation. Old English was 'weder', Old Dutch was 'weder' and German 'wedar'. Old Norse was 'vethr'. The words general translated as 'storm and winds. The Latin word was 'tempestas'. Through all this, the word weather, and its meaning, evolved with the passage of time.

Weather is how nature manifests its atmospheric conditions in our surroundings. A good example is rain, or a very windy day. In many cases it can be more violent like hurrican…es or tornadoes. Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.  Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere,   just below thestratosphere. Weather generally refers to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereasclimate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time.  When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth. Weather is driven by air pressure (temperature and moisture) differences between one place and another. These pressure and temperature differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow. Because the Earth's axis is tilted relative to its orbital plane, sunlight is incident at different angles at different times of the year. On Earth's surface, temperatures usually range Â±40 Â°C (â40 Â°F to 100 Â°F) annually. Over thousands of years, changes in Earth's orbit affect the amount and distribution of solar energy received by the Earth and influence long-term climate and global climate change. Surface temperature differences in turn cause pressure differences. Higher altitudes are cooler than lower altitudes due to differences in compressional heating. Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time and a given location. The atmosphere is a chaotic system, so small changes to one part of the system can grow to have large effects on the system as a whole. Human attempts to control the weather have occurred throughout human history, and there is evidence that human activity such as agriculture and industry has inadvertently modified weather patterns. Studying how the weather works on other planets has been helpful in understanding how weather works on Earth. A famous landmark in the Solar System, Jupiter's Great Red Spot , is an anticyclonic storm known to have existed for at least 300 years. However, weather is not limited to planetary bodies. A star's corona is constantly being lost to space, creating what is essentially a very thin atmosphere throughout the Solar System. The movement of mass ejected from the Sun is known as the solar wind. short term variation in atmosphere.
Stormy Weather is generally associated within an air of low pressure, where warm moist air rises, or is forced to rise (e.g. widespread ascent/ orographic uplift etc) and cond…ense at a considerably rapid rate. The intensity of the lifting mechanism, humidity (water vapour content) and thus ambient temperature, determine the strength/ferocity of the storm. Lightning may be caused by charge gradients within the 3 or 'tripod' layers of the cumulonimbus clouds.
Because the sun heats up the earth, causing differing air pressures, creating wind, rain, and all other forms of weather.
Because there are 4 seasons. And seasons are because of the earth's rotation around the Sun. Basically, what matters is the number of sunny hours. If you live on the Equator, …there is only one season and the weather is very much the same throughout the year because it gets constant sunlight. And within seasons weather changes due to earth's rotation around its own axis, there is condensation cycle as well, so it is pretty complex in nature.
Basically, the sun heats the earth and its atmosphere causing differences in air temperature. The warm air rises from the equator and travels towards the poles.
It is usually called a station model or station model diagram.
nothing ! because your wrong grammar !
the natural process by which atmospheric and eviromental agents,such as wind,rain, and decomposite rocks"Weathering" (proper spelling) is the breaking down of natural andartif…icial materials through contact with the earth and itsatmosphere, water, and other biological factors.
The weather doesn't exactly do anything it what it IS that matters. Weather is what is happening right now if you look outside example; Outside i'ts raining.
it came from the greek word meteōrologiā. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_is_meteorology_called_meteorology#ixzz2W5sXdmX8
The answer to this question is a Meteorologist.
Sunny, Mostly Sunny, Partly Sunny, Partly Cloudy, Overcast, Mostly Cloudy, Cloudy, Breezy, Windy, Gusty, Fog, Showers, Rain Showers, Rain, Drizzle, Light Rain, Moderate Rain, …Heavy Rain, Thunderstorm, Thundershower, Heavy Thunderstorm, Snow, Light Snow, and Heavy Snow. You can also use scattered or isolated to tell where. In severe weather such as tornados, fires, floods, droughts, dust storms, blizzards, and earthquakes, you need to take cover (seek shelter).
weather can affect all organisms no matter if it is extreme or not, weather can cause damage and be refreshing
weathering is the decay of the rocks of the earth's crust to the exposure to the atmosphere i.e., a process by which the rocks exposed on the surface get broken up into smalle…r particle. there are 2 types of weathering: 1.mechanical weathering 2.chemical weathering
