What causes the weather on Earth?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ultimately, the sun causes weather by providing Earth with heat which is then trapped in the lower atmosphere. Heat interacts with the surface and where heat builds up, pressure gradients develop and cause wind, which serves to transport the heat. The Sun also interacts with the water cycle, which leads to processes that put moisture into the air, which can cause clouds and precipitation. When pressure changes, clouds and precipitation form in different patterns, weather is created, all driven by the Sun shining on a rotating Earth.
