iFact #47 - Extensive List of Weather Terms - Weather Related Terminology / Jargon
This list of weather and weather-related terms is very extensive; therefore we have divided it into managable sections - six in total. They have been spread out over the weather sound effects pages. If you wish to follow this article on weather terms and terminology information the links below will help make navigation easier. Alternatively, the weather terms and information list follows the weather sound effects pages, for example, page one of weather sound effects also holds part one of the weather terminology list, page two has part two and so on and so forth.

List of Weather Terms / Terminology Explanations - Part 5 of 6|
Precipitation in the form of hard, round pellets or irregular lumps of ice that may have concentric shells formed by the successive freezing of layers of water.
Halo - A narrow whitish ring of large diameter centered around the Sun. The commonly observed 22° halo subtends an angle of 22° from the observer.
The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.
The balance of incoming and outgoing radiation.
Day Each degree of temperature of the daily mean below 65°F is counted as one heating degree- day. The amount of heat required to maintain a certain temperature in a building is proportional to the heating degree-days total.
A zone of the atmosphere beyond about 80 kilometers where the gases are arranged into four roughly spherical shells, each with a distinctive composition.
High Cloud - A cloud that normally has its base above 6000 meters; the base may be lower in winter and at high-latitude locations.
Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.
A zone of atmosphere extending from Earth’s surface to about 80 kilometers that is uniform in terms of the proportions of its component gases.
Horse Latitude - A belt of calm or light variable winds and subsiding air located near the center of the subtropical high. (30 degrees North Lattitude)
Humid Continental Climate - A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40° and 50° north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans. Humidity - A general term referring to water vapor in the air.
Humid Subtropical Climate
A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.
A tropical cyclonic storm having minimum winds of 119 kilometers per hour; also known as typhoon (western Pacific) and cyclone (Indian Ocean).
A warning issued when sustained winds of 119 kilometers per hour or higher are expected within a specified coastal area in 24 hours or less.
An announcement aimed at specific coastal areas that a hurricane poses a possible threat, generally within 36 hours.
The continuous movement of water from the oceans to the atmosphere (by evaporation), from the atmosphere to the land (by condensation and precipitation), and from the land back to the sea (via stream flow).
The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.
Hydrostatic Equilibrium - The balance maintained between the force of gravity and the vertical pressure gradient that does not allow air to escape to space.
Hygrometer - An instrument designed to measure relative humidity.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
Ice Cap Climate
A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its per- petual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
A large cell of low pressure centered over Iceland and southern Greenland in the North Atlantic during the winter.
The temperature at which ice melts.
Ideal Gas Law
The pressure exerted by a gas is proportional to its density and absolute temperature.
