Next Question: What does the Saffir Simpson scale measure?
It categorizes hurricanes based on their wind speed in mph

This is mostly correct but the Saffir-Simpson Scale does not necessarly have to measure the wind speed in mph, rather it is measured by the intensity of sustained winds. It might also be helpful to include that there are five categories :)

Next Question:
What are some types of rainbows and why are they different from normal, primary rainbows?

Next Question: Which type of heat is released on a sunny summer afternoon with high humidity when the sun begins to
set and the air begins to cool?
Convection or Radiation?

Sharan.thiru wrote Convection or Radiation?
I think that was asked like a while ago, and I already answered it but I don't think the author ever gave confirmation. I don't think its either of the ones you mentioned because its talking about the type of energy released not type of heat transfer?

Also, in the future, please remember to hide your answers!

There was also a question recently asked! ;)

For this question: Which type of heat is released on a sunny summer afternoon with high humidity when the sun begins to
set and the air begins to cool?, I think the answer is
Latent Heat
For the rainbow question:
Monochrome rainbows; whose color spectrums are based on the color red. 
Moonbows, which form under the moonlight.
Too lazy to find more xd

Next question: Why do anvil clouds form?

There are also secondary and supernumerary, among others!

I'm not sure if you meant how, but for why they form: instability, expanding and the stratosphere Next Question :) ! What are the differences between cirrostratus and altostratus, as well as cirrocumulus and altocumulus?

I believe the main difference is the height they occur at? Also the different effects they cause including the bending of light to form halos and the shape/size of the clouds Next question: Describe a Skew T Log P graph and it's main purposes/axises

That's correct :D

:)
A Skew T Log P graph is a thermodynamic diagram with information collected from radiosondes. It shows the pressure logarithmically, meaning the scale is not linear and then the temperature skewed at a 90 degree angle. It also features the saturation mixing ratio, mixing ratio, dry adiabats, saturated adiabats, dew point and wind speed/direction as well. It is used to analyze the weather at a particular time and can be used to find the lifted condensation level, equilibrium level, convective inhibition, convective available potential energy and cloud condensation level. Hope that's enough!

Next Question!
What is graupel?

Graupel is a form of precipitation that forms when supercooled water falls on falling snowflakes and freezes. It usually consists of 2-5 mm rough "snow balls". I think it's also called ice pellets, but I may be wrong. Next question : What are some characteristics of cumulus clouds?

Thats right for the most part :D , but keep in mind that when the supercooled water freezes on the snowflake, its known as rime. Also, they are known as snow pellets, while sleet is known as ice pellets!

Cumulus clouds are puffy and low level. Generally, they are dense and detached from each other, unlike stratus clouds. They have flat bottoms and rounded tops and can grow vertically. They have sharp outlines from the rising mounds that can look a bit like cauiliflower. Many types of clouds share characteristics with cumulus clouds like cirrocumulus, altocumulus, cumolunimbus and stratocumulus! Next question: What cloud looks like waves on a beach? (hint: its a kind of instability)
