Who predicts the storms and how?
Meteorologists, also known as Forecasters are scientists who study the conditions of weather. Many tools are used to predict storms coming all around the world. What tools do they use? Surface maps, radar, and satellites. Surface maps help indicate high or low pressure. High pressure gives us the beautiful sunny skies. When low pressure is stipulated we are heading in a stormy direction. Computer forecasting models are used for different scenarios of what could happen within the atmosphere. Everyday millions of monitoring time from satellites are recorded. Meteorologists have dozens of these models to observe and any slight changes in the atmosphere can cause a different result. Technology has come a long way over the years in aiding us with warnings of storms so we can do our best to protect ourselves.
