Types of Weather


In weather study, most weather phenomena are called ‘Meteors’. This where the term Meteorology comes from.

The International Cloud Atlas gives the definition as :

”A Meteor is a phenomenon, other than a cloud, observed in the atmosphere, or on the surface of the Earth, which consists of a precipitation, a suspension or a deposit of aqueous or non-aqueous liquid or solid particles, or a phenomenon of the nature of an optical or electrical manifestation”.

Wow! Fantastic stuff!

Meteors are actually classified into four groups.

1. Hydrometeors

2. Lithometeors

3. Electrometeors

4. Photometeors

There are also Other Phenomena not in these groups.
