How many weather tools are there?
This video by Mike Sammartano explains how six common weather instruments work: thermometers, barometers, sling psychrometers, anemometers, wind or weather vanes and rain gauges.
What is a weather thermometer?
A weather thermometer will tell you how hot or cold it is. A weather thermometer is usually inside a closed glass tube containing liquids like alcohol or mercury. Temperature is measured in Celsius or Fahrenheit, depending on where you are located in the world.
What two weather instruments are most important for predicting the weather?
Barometer: measures atmospheric pressure, which is the pressure that’s felt from the weight of the air around you. Anemometer: measures wind speed.
