Sky READING THE SKYClouds consist of droplets of water (ice or snow) in suspension. The warmer the air the greater capacity to carry moisture. If the temperature falls or too much moisture is fed into a cloud, it sheds in the form of rain, hail or snow (i.e. precipitation). Cirrus is feathery, either white or transparent, but can just obscure the sun. Terms Is taken from the synoptic chart of the weather probabilities in your area. The lines on the synoptic chart denote equal pressure, rather like a sea chart where the lines are lines of equal depths or a land map where contour lines are lines of equal height. High: A high is a peak, or centre, of high pressure and is marked as 'H' or 'HIGH' on weather maps.Low: A low is a centre of low pressure and is marked as 'L' or 'LOW' on weather maps. If its direction is marked, it will be shown as thick arrow.Barometric Pressure: Pressure is measured and shown in millibars or Hectopascal, which is in effect the same (one mb = one HPa). 1013 mb/HPa is average.Isobars: Isobars are contours or lines of equal pressure. Wind follows clockwise along the isobars blowing out of a high at an angle of 20° or so. In lows the wind follows anticlockwise, blowing in at a similar angle.

Storm chasing NSSL vehicles on the first VORTEX project (which operated in the seasons of 1994 - 1995), equipped with surface measurement equipment. Storm chasing is broadly defined as the pursuit of any severe weather condition, regardless of motive, which can be curiosity, adventure, scientific investigation, or for news or media coverage.[1] A person who chases storms is known as a storm chaser, or simply a chaser. While witnessing a tornado is the single biggest objective for most chasers, many chase thunderstorms and delight in viewing cumulonimbus and related cloud structure, watching a barrage of hail and lightning, and seeing what skyscapes unfold.
