How's the Weather Out There?

Just by looking up into the sky and seeing the clouds, you are able to tell alot about the weather.

A meterorologist wants to know more about how the weather changes. They will study the air around the earth and forecast the weather. They study meterorology in college courses. Then they predict the weather by using special instuments. These weather forecasts help pilots, farmers, construction workers, and forest rangers.
