Common Types of Weather

Regardless of the place where one habit, each one of us experiences a particular type of weather. Different places/locations face different types of weather. As the old man used to phrase it, prevention is better than cure – my little grandchildren should be exposed to the morning sunshine to be enriched in vitamin D which is readily available from the sun and specifically morning sunshine. Did you know that good health goes hand in hand with wealth? What is the connection between wealth and weather? Are the words rhyming poetically? (These questions sound rather comical and rhetorical). Nonetheless, Weather is a catalyst of wealth in different aspects. In the case of health and wealth, one type of weather – sunny- it is highly rich in vitamin D which prevents rickets in growing kids.

What clicks in your mind when this word-weather- is mentioned? In other words what do you understand by the word weather? In general weather can be defined as the condition/state of the atmosphere at a particular place and time in regards to hotness, cloudiness, the humidity of the place, sunshine, precipitation and wind. Weather is affected by various factors such as climate and seasons which makes it to greatly vary. Due to variation of the weather in places resulted by various factors mentioned above, different types of weather exists. Below are some of the common types of weather we see:

1. Sunny. Literally, this is the brightness caused by the sun. In Optic Physics, which is the study of light, the rectilinear propagation of sunlight is where described. It is during this type of weather conditions that we experience the sunlight which is not only used by human beings but also it is majorly used by the plants in the manufacture of food. Without sunlight, photosynthesis- a process by which green plants make their own food using sunlight. When the weather is sunny we experience heat released from the sun.

2. Cloudy. During the cloudy weather, the sky is covered by the clouds. The radiation waves of the sun are blocked by the clouds from reaching the surface of the earth. Although the weather may be cloudy, it does not necessarily mean that it is cold since cloud cover can trap in the heat near the surface of the earth. In other words, the heat released during oxidation of glucose by the living things, especially animals, have longer wavelengths that are trap by the cloud cover from escaping into the atmosphere.

3. Windy. As the geographers say, wind is a moving, when the weather is windy, the principle of physics behind is the convectional currents – the warm air masses tend to rise up while the cold air rushes to occupy the space. The formation of the convectional currents results in wind. Wind is beneficial in the production of electricity but through advancement techniques of the use of turbines.

4. Rainy and Snowy. These two types of weather forms in a similar way. As the temperature falls, the water vapor in the clouds changes into rain/ snowflakes in case of snowy conditions. Once the saturation point is attained the clouds are unable to hold the rain/snow anymore and it begin to fall.

These are some of the most types of weather we see/experience in different localities.

Common Weather Phenomena

Among the variable occurrences in the world is the weather. The fact that it is dynamic makes the atmosphere change from time to time. Sometimes these weather phenomena are disastrous while some are beneficial to the surrounding like snow in some countries is a tourist attraction.

What are some common weather phenomena?

Dew is among the most familiar phenomena of weather that occurs mostly at dawn and dusk. There are water droplets on grass, objects, and short sized plant matter and is as a result of condensation. When the surface exposed to air undergoes cooling through releasing its heat to the environment, moisture in the atmosphere condenses at a faster rate than its evaporating rate.

Thunder and lightning are experienced almost daily especially during thunderstorms in winter. Certain atmospheric conditions are responsible for causing rapid electrical discharges resulting in flashes of light which are termed as lightning and later trembling waves of sound called thunder. Scientifically, light travels faster than the sound that is why lightning will be seen first before a roar is heard.

The Rainbow is fascinating to view, and its formation is after reflection, refraction, and dispersion of rays of light happen. The aftermath is a spectrum of seven colors in the form of an arc that appears in the sky on the opposite side of the sun. Colors of the rainbow appear in the following order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Snow is a common weather phenomenon in the Western countries that are closer to the North and South Pole. Small crystals of ice in the clouds become compact to form snowflakes. When the crystals grow heavy, they drop on the ground as solid precipitation. Snow occurs when temperatures are below 0 degrees Celsius. Snow exists in two major types; dry and wet snow.

Clouds are visible in the sky all day and night. They form when air that is moist and warm rises cools and undergoes expansion in the atmosphere. Clouds appear in different shapes, and the types commonly known are nimbus, cirrus, cumulus, and stratus. Sometimes, there is a combination of different kinds of clouds to form other clouds.

Wind is moving air. Typically, the heat energy from the sun on the earth is unevenly distributed bringing a difference in air densities in different regions. When warm air goes through expansion, it rises while cold air will condense and sink. This flow of air differs with intensities and direction o wind it blows from. There are different types of winds like monsoon winds, westerly, trade winds, local winds and planetary winds.

Fog happens when cloud water droplets that are visible are suspended in the atmosphere near the surface of the earth. Fog is influenced by topography, large water bodies, and wind activities. Fog greatly affects warfare, shipping, and travel. Fog is almost similar to mist but slightly different.

Frost is as a result of the outside surface cooling while exceeding the point where becomes excessively cold, the water vapor present in the air turns into liquid and freezing takes place when it is cold enough.
