Thermometer: Measures air temperature, crucial for understanding atmospheric conditions and climate trends.
Barometer: Records atmospheric pressure, aiding in the prediction of weather changes. Falling pressure often indicates approaching storms, while rising pressure suggests fair weather.
Hygrometer: Measures humidity levels in the air, essential for assessing comfort, potential for precipitation, and predicting weather patterns.
Anemometer: Determines wind speed and direction, vital for understanding local and regional wind patterns, as well as predicting storm intensity.
Rain Gauge: Collects and measures the amount of precipitation over a specific period, providing valuable data for climate studies, agriculture, and flood monitoring.
Weather Balloon (Radiosonde): Carries instruments aloft to collect data on temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure at different altitudes, aiding in upper-air weather analysis.
Ceilometer: Measures the height of cloud bases above the ground, helping in aviation and providing information about cloud cover.
Weather Radar: Uses radio waves to detect precipitation intensity, movement, and type, assisting in tracking storms and predicting severe weather events.
