Where on Earth does the temperature drop to -128 degrees Fahrenheit? What is a wind farm? And how does rain look from an ant's perspective? Combining remarkable time-lapse and slow-motion photography with news footage and diagrams, this program provides a thorough overview of the causes and effects of the Earth's weather. Sections one through three present temperature, wind, and precipitation, while sections four through seven focus on weather measurement, the impact of weather, the formation of clouds and the clues they give about future weather conditions, and the effects of extreme heat and cold, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
