  • How far can a band of clouds move in a day?

    Best answer: How far a band of clouds can move in a day depends on their altitude above ground level (AGL) b/c wind speed increases with height. Low (high) level clouds such as cumulus (cirrus) are found near 4,500' (25,000') AGL where typical wind speed ranges typically between 20 (50) and 30 (75) mph; therefore ...... show more

    Low (high) level clouds such as cumulus (cirrus) are found near 4,500' (25,000') AGL where typical wind speed ranges typically between 20 (50) and 30 (75) mph; therefore ... all else equal .. cumulus (cirrus) clouds theoretically travel ~600 (~1,500) miles.

  • Why the weather is so extreme in USA and Europe in 2018? What is the reason..?

    Best answer: Here's the real reason why there is extreme weather conditions in America and Europe now; it's winter. In winter ... intense horizontal contrasts in temperature ... particularly between land and sea areas ... induce strong storms characterized by high winds and heavy precipitation. In the final analysis... show more
    Best answer: Here's the real reason why there is extreme weather conditions in America and Europe now; it's winter.

    In winter ... intense horizontal contrasts in temperature ... particularly between land and sea areas ... induce strong storms characterized by high winds and heavy precipitation.

    In the final analysis ... these conditions act to balance the earth's energy budget by dissipating excess heat from the tropics with excess cold in the polar regions.

  • Why don't they spray chemtrails in the Winter?

    Best answer: It's too cold for all the nasty chemicals they are spending billions on to spray on you to work.
    Mind you even in the summer it's minus 50c at the altitude the jets fly.

  • Chicago snowstorms vs. NYC snowstorms?

    Best answer: It's possible for Chicago to get significantly more snow than 20 inches from a single storm ... given the right conditions; however ... seeing how CHI has never observed more than 20" that means it's highly unlikely. The primary reason why east coast winter storms have the potential to produce more... show more
    Best answer: It's possible for Chicago to get significantly more snow than 20 inches from a single storm ... given the right conditions; however ... seeing how CHI has never observed more than 20" that means it's highly unlikely.

    The primary reason why east coast winter storms have the potential to produce more snow that CHI is related directly to the availability of greater moisture. East coast storms can readily tap moisture from the Atlantic ocean ... a luxury CHI does not have.

    Best answer: Coriolis Effect, which has nothing to do with water going down a drain.

    wikipedia:
    In physics, the Coriolis force is an inertial force that acts on objects that are in motion relative to a rotating reference frame. In a reference frame with clockwise rotation, the force acts to the left of the motion of the object. In one with anticlockwise rotation, the force acts to the right. Deflection of an object due to the Coriolis force is called the Coriolis effect. Though recognized previously by others, the mathematical expression for the Coriolis force appeared in an 1835 paper by French scientist Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis, in connection with the theory of water wheels. Early in the 20th century, the term Coriolis force began to be used in connection with meteorology.

    In popular (non-technical) usage of the term "Coriolis effect", the rotating reference frame implied is almost always the Earth. Because the Earth spins, Earth-bound observers need to account for the Coriolis force to correctly analyze the motion of objects. The Earth completes one rotation per day, so for motions of everyday objects the Coriolis force is usually quite small compared to other forces; its effects generally become noticeable only for motions occurring over large distances and long periods of time, such as large-scale movement of air in the atmosphere or water in the ocean. Such motions are constrained by the surface of the Earth, so only the horizontal component of the Coriolis force is generally important. This force causes moving objects on the surface of the Earth to be deflected to the right (with respect to the direction of travel) in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Contrary to popular misconception, water rotation in home bathrooms under normal circumstances is not related to the Coriolis effect or to the rotation of the Earth, and no consistent difference in rotation direction between toilet drainage in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres can be observed.
