Weather can be defined as the state of the atmosphere, the atmosphere being the collection of gases that surround the earth, which mostly consist of nitrogen and a bit of oxygen. The state of the atmosphere is affected by temperature, pressure and moisture differences between areas. These differences are caused by the effect of the sun rays on different parts of the Earth’s curved surface, the temperature being dependent on the angle of contact. When the sun’s rays hit the surface directly, more heat is generated compared to when they hit at shallower angle. When one area is hotter than another area, air will rapidly move from the colder area to try create a temperature equilibrium between the areas. This process creates the the effect of wind.
