Summary:"New Englanders have a saying: """"If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute."""" Weather forecasts may be more stable in other parts of the world, but the basic idea stands. weather is dynamic, the product of interacting forces we are only beginning to understand. This interactive teaches students about weather and climate, discussing: the atmosphere, the water cycle, powerful storms, ice and snow, forecasting, and our changing climate."
