also-does anyone have sites for weather instruments?
the wiki has a table of instruments but there isn't any pics of what they look like
Type the names into google images that will yield good results
eventually there may be a picture that has them on the wiki just depends

You SHOULD know what you are asking, because if YOU don't know what you're asking, then how can anyone else? But I'll do my best...

The most you should need to know is conversions. There aren't really any formulas like in Solar System or some of those other events. For example, know how to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius to Kalvin and back, how to convert Millibars to Inches in Mercury, how to change Miles per Hour into Knots, and maybe just to be on the safe side know some measurement conversions, like feet to yards, etc.

First of all what what browser are you using IE, Chrome, Firefox, or Opera?
Second what happens when you try to open it?

lol yea I should. What about finding relative humidity? There's a formula for it. relative humidity = e/es * 100. Something like that.
