How can forecasters predict the weather?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How can forecasters predict the weather?       
How can forecasters predict the weather? Meteorologists use a wide range of instruments and techniques to help them track changes in the weather and to predict future weather conditions. Weather forecasters have used simple instruments such as thermometers, rain gauges, barometers and wind gauges for many years, but the advent of satellite photography has transformed weather forecasting.

Weather satellites can track the movements of clouds, and show the positions of high and low pressure areas and weather fronts.

Radar measures the size, speed and direction of storms, so accurate warnings of severe weather can be given. With the use of computers, increasingly accurate forecasting is now possible.
