Wind, rain, snow, fog, frost, and sunshine are all signs of the constant shifting Earth's atmosphere. This continual change is what we call weather. The weather changes in four ways - its movement, which can bring winds; its temperature, which can cause anything from frost to heatwaves; its moisture content, which can bring rain; and its pressure, which can cause cloudless days or fierce storms.
