Weather affects everyone on planet Earth, and many of us love the beauty that weather brings to our lives. For some this passion leads to a scientific career, for others a lifelong interest in learning about our atmosphere and weather. The Weather Band is sharing current science that is accessible and relatable for all those interested in weather.
