well the wiki says these are the main things to know:
heat transport
atmospheric circulation patterns
air masses
fronts
weather forcasting technology
instruments
phenomena


plus we'll need to know stuff about climate and storms

are there any tests we could look at from previous years of everyday weather that you know of?

Are you sure we need to know climate and storms? We didn't need to know anything about storms for last year (climate), so why would we need to know about climate and storms for this year?

well the old rules don't state anything about storms and climate but if i remember right a few of the test i took had small sections on each and anyways most people will already know the climate stuff so all you really need to do is learn the basics of storm formation and clouds that relate to storm types

EDIT: i will finish the test hopefully by tomorrow night

I did this event topic, Everyday Weather, in Div B 3 years ago. I think it's the most straightforward of the meteorology topics. The only thing that was really troublesome was identifying the different clouds. Good luck.

i think the trouble with everyday weather is that its kind of broad...i mean...storms could be considered everyday weather i guess...but mostly its air pressure, clouds, fronts, and things like that...i think... :roll:
