The sun is the driver of all weather. without its energy there would be no "weather" at all.
The sun heats the land and the waters of earth. when land is heated the air above it expands and rises cooler air rushes in to fill the void. when water is heated it evaporates which rise to form clouds and carries water far and when it cools it falls as rain or snow.
as all the air moves wind is produced and its all a very complex system with much much more to it which is why weather prediction is so bad.

You could also say the water cycle

Well, air, water, and the sun interact to cause weather because the sun controls the weather. it's just like a water cycle.

The heat energy, air pressure, winds, and moisture are the four factors that interact to cause weather.

The particles cause water vapor to evaporate

water and air affects the weather because water is rain and air is wind. So when is rains the wind blows the rain in different directions and changes the weather. also water an air can affect the weather because when strong gust of wind can cause bad weather

how does the earth's ocean of air and ocean of water interact

The sun, combined with the rotation of the Earth and the interaction of air with land and water cause weather.

the air mass stuffies like changes the weather

Water condenses around dust particles and becomes clouds.

Moisture (water droplets) is saturating the air when the weather is humid.

Weather is caused by water vapor, precipitation, cloud cover, landforms, bodies of water, elevation and air movement. for more information and links go to my site at, ogaden-future.yolasite.com

Warm water warms and moistens the air directly above it. If this warm, moist air is uplifted it will cool and the moisture in it will condense, producing rain and potentially storms.

Animals burrow and these burrows then allow rain water and air to come in contact with rocks which can cause weathering.

it has a weather cause. ----- The cause of a hurricane is warm water providing power to rising heated air, which produces a cyclonic set of winds because of the rotation of the earth. I would say geologic is the best description of these three.

The interaction of air, water and SUN result in WEATHER!!!

The air cools and clouds form, and my cause rainy or stormy weather

water, air, chemicals, ect Acid rain contains sulfuric acid that can chemically weather rocks.

Too much air pollution can cause bad weather and sicknesses and/or deaths of many species!

The air cools and clouds form and may cause rainy or stormy weather.

A weather front is a boundary separating two masses of air of different densities, and is the principal cause of meteorological phenomena.

User Avatar

Air masses and the water cycle are two factors that influence the weather. Other weather factors are weather fronts and the jet streams. These include air moisture, wind, and temperature.

because it is not safe to travel when the weather is stormy.

Weather becomes pleasant . Humidity is increased in air.

Weather is caused by the interaction of air,water,and sun. This forms air masses which can soon form fronts where air moves from high pressure areas to low pressure areas.

Things that affect weather are hot air and cold air mixing latitude elevation Closeness to large bodies of water.
