The Weather Resource Page

Written and compiled by .

Weather is sometimes as simple as rain drops falling into your palm or on your umbrella canvas, but it can also be complex and scary. Air can form tornado funnels whirling through the sky. We need the different elements of weather – rain, snow, hail, ice, and others – to support our life here on Earth. It is fun to learn about weather and the ways it affects people according to where they live. Children in other countries have different weather conditions. Some rarely see snow, while others may live in a place where it might rain for long periods of time. No matter where you live, weather is all around you. You can watch, learn and experience it every day.
