Weather and Climate
Pick a location outside of the United states and describe the state of the atmosphere at that location. Refer to your textbook about describing the state of the atmosphere and include at least 6 of the 11 weather parameters. This post should be 300 words and sources should be cited.
Here is an example:
The location I have selected is Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. The climate of Cancun is tropical (“Climate”). From May to October the weather is muggy and rainy (“Climate”). On the other hand, November to April the weather is dry and cooler (“Climate”). The average temperature in January is 75 degrees F (“Climate”). Meanwhile, the average temperature from June to August is 84 degrees F (“Climate”). To determine the state of the atmosphere in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico today, I researched using the weather.com website. On September 7,2019, the maximum temperature is 87 degrees F at 3pm EST. The maximum pressure is typically early or mid afternoon (Mills and Moran 44). After watching the temperature for an hour, the temperature was dropping. The minimum temperature was 76 degrees F. The minimum temperature is typically around sunrise (Mills and Moran 44). The dewpoint is at 76 degrees F. The dew point is “the temperature to which air must be cooled at constant pressure to become saturated with water vapor and for dew to begin forming on relatively cold surfaces” (Mills and Moran 44). The relative humidity is at 70%. Relative humidity is typically the highest around sunrise which is the coldest time (Mills and Moran 44). It is normally the lowest during the warmest part of the day which is about mid-afternoon (Mills and Moran 44). The wind direction is NE 2 mph. The wind direction and speed is “the wind direction from which the wind blows.”
