Sometimes, you cannot fully understand the reports about the weather forecast. Every word is very important when it comes to the emergencies and disasters like typhoons, tornadoes, and a lot more.
To have some idea, read this blog and know the meaning of the words related to the weather.

Cirus – a type of cloud which is generally characterized by thin, wispy strands, giving the type its name from the Latin word cirrus, meaning a ringlet or curling lock of hair.
Cloudy – covered with or characterized by clouds; overcast.
Cold Front – the boundary of an advancing mass of cold air, in particular, the trailing edge of the warm sector of a low-pressure system.
Cumulus – a cloud forming rounded masses heaped on each other above a flat base at fairly low altitude.
Cyclone – a system of winds rotating inward to an area of low atmospheric pressure, with a counterclockwise (northern hemisphere) or clockwise (southern hemisphere) circulation; a depression. It is another term for a tropical storm.
East – the direction toward the point of the horizon where the sun rises at the equinoxes, on the right-hand side of a person facing north, or the point on the horizon itself.
Easterly – a wind blowing from the east.
Equinox – the time or date (twice each year) at which the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length (about September 22 and March 20).
Flurries – very light snowfall.
Fog – a thick cloud of tiny water droplets suspended in the atmosphere at or near the earth’s surface that obscures or restricts visibility.
Flash Flood Warning – a flash flood warning is issued to inform the public, emergency management, and other cooperating agencies that flash flooding is in progress, imminent, or highly likely.
Hail – a frozen form of precipitation consisting of individual balls or lumps of ice called hailstones, produced from cumulonimbus or thunderstorm clouds.
High Pressure – a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is above average (e.g., in an anticyclone).
Humid – with a high amount of water vapor or moisture in the air.
Lightning – a huge natural electric flash between a cloud and the earth or between two clouds.
Low Pressure – a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is below average (e.g., in a depression).
Nimbus – a large gray rain cloud.
North – the direction in which a compass needle normally points, toward the horizon on the left side of a person facing east, or the part of the horizon lying in this direction.
Overcast – is the meteorological condition of clouds obscuring at least 95% of the sky.
Partly cloudy – this term often used in a weather forecast to indicate that the skies are sunny and cloudy at the same time.
South – the direction toward the point of the horizon 90° clockwise from the east, or the point on the horizon itself.
Sunny – bright with light from the sun.
Shower – quick, light fall of rain.
Stratus – cloud forming a continuous horizontal gray sheet, often with rain or snow.
Temperature – is a measure of the warmth or coldness of an object or substance with reference to a standard value. It can be measured in Kelvin (K), Fahrenheit (F), or Celsius (C).
Thunderstorm – a storm with thunder and lightning and typically also heavy rain or hail.
Tornado – violently spinning windstorm.
Tornado Warning – a tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been spotted or indicated by radar.
Tropical Storm – a localized, very intense low-pressure wind system, forming over tropical oceans and with winds of hurricane force.
Tropical Depression – an atmospheric low-pressure system originating in the tropics, specifically, a tropical cyclone in which the maximum sustained wind speed is 38 miles per hour (62 kilometers per hour) or less.
West – the direction toward the point of the horizon where the sun sets at the equinoxes, on the left-hand side of a person facing north, or the part of the horizon lying in this direction.
Windy – marked by or exposed to strong winds.
