The answer is:
METAR is a routine weather report used in airports.

I think its the Troposphere. Correct me if I'm wrong. :D

Hello! Since there are 2 questions...

El Nino effects
El Nino warms up the Pacific Ocean (don't know how much sadly) and decreases wind shear in the Pacific. Thus, the western border of North America faces many more tropical storms like tornadoes and huge increases in precipitation.


What forms thunderstorms
Generally speaking, thunderstorms are caused by rising of a lot of warm air and like how convection works, this warm air "rubs" with the cold air to create not only charged particles with electrons charging towards the ground (positively charged) but forms clouds that meteorologist call Cumulonimbus clouds.


Please help and explain to me the corrections if I got the questions wrong. This is my 1st time posting and I wish you all best of luck!

I guess I'll resurrect this thread.

1. At what point (ppm) will the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere be so high that the level is irreversible?

2. Explain how uneven heating by the Sun creates wind, and describe how the Coriolis force impacts wind systems.
