Becoming a meteorologist does not require a college degree; in fact some of the best paid weather personalities seen on television do not have a degree in meteorology. For those aspiring to become weather forecasters as a career occupation do require an education. Meteorology as a broad field of scientific study required the budding weather forecaster to have a solid background and understanding of mathematics, science and technology. The average person planning his career in meteorology should involve themselves in as many math courses possible starting from as early as middle school.   More...

Radars are used to effectively monitor and report weather conditions do so by sending out electromagnetic waves much like those used by wireless computer and mobile phones on a network. These signals are transmitted by a series of short pulses and are reflected by any objects on their directional path thus reflected to the origin of the signal which in this case would be the weather radar. Weather radars are specifically designed to detect the presence of rain drops, snow, and even the presence of hail from the intensity of the reflected radio waves a person can easily give an estimation of the location of the event and how heavy it is.   More...

Meteorologists and weather forecasting enthusiasts have been able to increase their knowledge respective to the occurrence and strengthening of hurricanes and tropical storms by the use of satellites and a range of scientifically advanced tools. Satellites which have commonly been referred to as our great eyes within the sky are often used by meteorologists through a variety of onboard sensors and radars to actively track and monitor storms by taking accurate readings including wind speeds and temperatures within these storms allowing meteorologists to have a better understanding to these weather conditions.   More...

An Introduction to Weather Forecasting

Weather forecasting or weather prediction id achieved by the process involving future estimation of unknown possibilities based on current conditions. Today weather and climate forecasting has become something of a popular novelty. As early as 1812 Napoleon in Moscow was seen studying what scold be seen as some of the very first ever weather statistics relative to the anticipation of cold climate conditions.   More...

Many of us have in occasion checked our local weather report and was informed we would be having a sunny day and instead have observed a rainy day. The main reason attributing for this misinterpretation in the weather forecast is due to the fact that weather forecasts are updated depending on the particular location which most of the time is at your local airport where the conditions may vary from where you might be. Most people who require hyper local information including golfers, sailors, landscapers, or weather enthusiasts have found the solution in personal weather stations which over the years have improved in their sophistication and accuracy and are quite easy to set up by the average home person.   More...

The typical weather map will provide the average person with a simplified version of the current or forecasted weather condition of a specific area. Most users would have at some time or the other been exposed to what is commonly referred to as a surface analysis. Most weather enthusiasts find themselves greatly concerned with precipitation or simply known as the study of weather conditions relative to meteorology which includes any form of water which falls to the surface of the Earth. Precipitation will occur in several forms such as hail, rain, snow, and even sleet. The existence of high pressure generally signifies the possibility of fair to fine weather as opposed to low pressure which normally implies heavy precipitation.   More...

The NEXRAD or commonly referred Next Generation Radar consists of a complex network with over 160 high resolution Doppler Weather Radars specifically using what is known as the S-band. These Doppler Radars are operated within United States of America by the National Weather Service which is an existing branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The technical name by which the NEXRAD radar is more commonly associated with is the WSR-88D radar or Weather Surveillance Radar, 1988 Doppler.   More...

The Doppler Weather Radar Has Evolved

Developed by the National Severe Storms Laboratory, the Doppler weather radar was specifically designed to identify areas of precipitation, humidity, and current wind speeds of a particular area and use that information to accurately predict the future movement and intensity. This data obtained when carefully analyzed allowed the operator to determine the specific nature to potential storms and calculate their destructive capability. The radar's function is based on the Doppler Effect principle of careful observation and study of the frequency within air waves to successfully determine wind speeds and direction to give an accurate forecast of the current weather.   More...

The hydrosphere often called 'water sphere' is the total combined mass of H2O what we typically refer to as water existing both above and below the Earth's surface. The hydrosphere covers almost seventy percent of the Earth's surface. This mass includes all the oceans which accounts for over ninety seven percent of the Earth's water, rivers, lakes, and even the very moisture contained within the air we breathe. Like the atmosphere the hydrosphere is always moving in the form of water flowing within oceans, streams and rivers.   More...
