What are the elements of weather?

Elements of weather and climate
a) Temperature is how hot or cold the atmosphere is, how many degrees Celsius
(centigrade) it is above or below freezing (0°C). Temperature is a very
important factor in determining the weather, because it influences or controls
other elements of the weather, such as precipitation, humidity, clouds and
atmospheric pressure.
b) Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere.
c) Precipitation: is the product of any condensation process
Precipitation includes snow, hail, sleet, drizzle, fog, mist and rain.
d) Atmospheric pressure (or air pressure) is the weight of air resting on the
earth's surface. Pressure is shown on a weather map, often called a synoptic
map, with lines called isobars.
e) Wind is the movement of air masses from high pressure areas (highs) to low
pressure areas (lows).
