Item Details

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.
