Weather Forecasts

Weather forecasts are predictions of atmosphere and climate that are usually shown on the news. They are often measured with barometric pressure. Weather forecasts are useful when it comes to planning events. It could make the difference of going outside or staying inside.

Where can you find the temperature and weather forecast for your area or another area of the world?

Weather changes through the day, the weeks, and the seasons, and is different all over the world.
I am certain that somewhere on planet Earth it is going to rain on Sunday.
It seems that way. And when it doesnt rain, the temperatures will be lower than normal. And this is all over the east coast. 2009 doesnt look like a promising year for good weather.
No it is not going to rain on Monday
Is it hoeing to rain in George
yes
You gtta re-write your question because people don't know what you're on bout like WHERE are you make your question better by saying Eg: IS IT REALLY GONNA RAIN IN LONDON ?
the answer is no! p.s do you like super man?
you guys never anwser my question the correct way
You can find out by going to any search engine, such as google.com and type in the words "local weather." It will give you sites where you can type in the location or its zip code and find out the weather forecast.
There is a chance of showers today, May 21, 2014, for Omaha, NE.
yes it always does !!
Ottawa Ontario? Of course! Ottawa gets plenty of snow every year. Right now the overall atmospheric pattern is pretty bad for cold and snow in this region. It has to do with a few things, including the large-scale atmospheric mass balance in the Arctic, the Pacific, and our ongoing La Nina. The pattern may not break until Christmas or even the new year, but it will get better. Besides, Ottawa is far enough north that things could certainly come together before that to bring some snow, even when the pattern doesn't favor it. It doesn't look good for a white Christmas, but you never know in Ottawa.
Wintry showers are forecast for the north west of the UK for the next 2 days
It snows every year in all of NY state.
It will somewhere. It's impossible to tell this far in advance, however.

snow in Virginia today

snow in Virginia today

no it isint
Yes child it is.
It will if you want it to. It won't if you don't.
I'm not sure because on BBC weather they said it is set to turn milder (warm).
No, because we are in the valley (:
No
Is Laredo going to snow this year

Nobody knows but its most likly to be in the winter
No
Not in the UK it's not - the temperature forecast is far too warm for snow.


It depends on what "tomorrow" is. It could be December 1st or January 9th (based on today's date) and I don't know how to answer.

You can go on Weather.com and find the weather, or if you have a Yahoo! mail account, you can search up weather there, too. You can also do it with Google...I think it was iGoogle.

Can the weather be manipulated?

Generally no, but sometimes it can be helped along by a process called 'cloud seeding'. Cloud seeding is done by dispersing elements such as dry ice crystals or silver iodide in the atmosphere with an airplane or even ground based stations. Seeding clouds is believed to promote condensation of water droplets, thus, rain.

If you want more information read about the HAARP Program>>>>> It can be manipulated in more ways then you can think.

Who makes weather forecast on tv or radio?

Usually, the person you see on TV or hear on the radio is a pretty boy (or girl) with a nice voice and essentially no real knowledge of meteorology. The actual forecast is usually made by someone a a remote service like AccuWeather. One way to tell the real scientists is that you can't get a seal from the American Meteorology Society without having a degree in Atmospheric Science or an allied field.

How is the dew point used to help forecast weather?

As the dew point increases, the amount of water vapor in the air will increase. Dew points over 70 usually will indicate humid conditions and possible storms. Dew points in the 50s-60s usually will indicate fair/nice weather. Dew points below 50 will be very dry and pleasent. The dew point and the temperature are plugged into an equation to give you reletive humidity (how humid it is out).

You should take the child to a doctor, but when my son had a lump in an area behind his ear and close by his neck, with fever, he had strep throat. ===ANOTHER ANSWER=== It could also indicate an infection of the sinus system. Have your child seen at a clinic, family doctor or an ENT doctor (ear, nose and throat doctor)

What jobs rely on accurate weather forecasts?

A ton! One job that heavily relies on the weather is telecommunications. Yep, I would have never guess it until I became a field manager. First, you have to think that everywhere there is a phone line it means that there literally is a copper wire (sometimes fiber optic now) from that phone to the other phone you are speaking to (cell phones are connect to transmitters that are connected to phone lines). A lot of how a phone works by the amount of battery current that is on the line and is transmitted all the way through to your phone set. When there is any (especially heavy) precipitation, water can get into the phone lines and cause static, noise, and service outages. While the copper in phone lines are covered the lines can be over 100 years old, so naturally there can be many wears and tears. Since lots of the phone lines run outside when it rains, snow melts, etc water can get into the tiny crevasses and cause outages of affected service. When I worked ans a field manager for one of the leading US telecommunication companies, I checked the weather multiple times a day. Whenever it would storm it would mean lots of work.

What is weather?

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 hurricanes 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.[1] Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere,[2][3] 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.[4] 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 ±40 °C (−40 °F to 100 °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.

Where can you find the current weather forecast for your location?

Because the weather constantly changes every moment in every area of the world, WikiAnswers cannot provide current air temperatures and weather reports for any location in the world.

Instead, you can follow the Related Links below to enter your city, state, country, and/or zip code for current or forecasted weather data in your -- or another -- area. (For the US, official reports can be found at the NOAA site)

WikiAnswers can, however, provide historical weather data for any location in the world, because, since history has already happened, it doesn't constantly change -- or change at all.

Simply submit your question in the large, green Ask bar above and click on the Go button. For best results (in other words: to get a quicker answer), provide such important information as your:

  • City, state, country, or zip code,
  • And, the calendar date by month, day, and year,

Other optional, but helpful, information to include within your question:

  • The measurement unit you prefer (Celsius, Fahrenheit, etc.),
  • Whether you want the high, low, or average temperature,
  • And/or, specify whether you are asking for a temperature or info such as rain, snow, thunderstorms, wind, humidity, air pressure, etc.

Also, make sure you place your question in the correct categories:

  • Meteorology and Weather
  • The category for your city, state, or country

What is the importance of weather forecasts?

Most people plan their leisure time ahead according to the weather forecast. You might not want to go to the beach in a rainy day for example.

The other importance of the forecast are the storms and hurricanes. Imagine a hurricane all of a sudden in your neighborhood. Not good, right? The weather forecast will let you know about hurricanes with enough time to prepare your home or evacuate if needed.
