Meteorology is the study of all changes in the atmosphere, i.e. the layers of gases (air) that surround the earth. In order to do this we will need to study current weather conditions and the general climate in your area, and identify which factors most affect your daily temperature.

To do this, you must first make a weather station. Begin by designing and building some of the same instruments that meteorologists use.
