- Weather events happen because the sun heats the Earth’s surface unevenly.
- More sunlight hits the equator than it does the North and South Poles.
- Uneven heating results in temperature differences, which cause air currents to form.
- The sun constantly powers this process on the Earth and causes high and low air pressure.
- Climate refers to long-term average temperatures, rain and snowfall data collected in a place for over several years.
- Rain is made when water evaporates and the air cools down and then turns into water droplets.
- Some Climates are the same kind of weather, but the UK has a very unpredictable climate.
- The highest wind speed ever recorded is 372 km/h.
- The highest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 58 Celsius in the Libyan desert.
- The coldest temperature ever measured was -88 Celsius at Vostok Station in Antarctica.
