    The sun is the primary source of energy used in the earth. So the amount of rainfall, temperature, humidity, wind, pressure etc, is influnced by the amount of insolation reaching the earth surface.

    The variations of weather on Earth result from the different ways that solar energy is distributed. The sun’s radiation does not reach all parts of the Earth equally; this is due to factors like distance from the sun and tilt of the axis. Furthermore, the materials that comprise natural features affect weather, since they heat up at different rates. Water also plays a huge role in the distribution of solar energy and consequent weather patterns. Ocean currents and the hydrologic cycle can move this energy all over the globe. Meteorology explores in-depth the various processes that are involved in weather.
