Weather forecasts are made by collecting data from a variety of sources, including weather satellites, weather balloons, and weather stations, and then using computer models to analyze and predict how the weather is likely to behave.
The data collected includes information on temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, and atmospheric pressure, as well as observations of clouds, precipitation, and other weather phenomena. The computer models take into account the laws of physics and the behavior of the atmosphere to simulate how the weather is likely to evolve over time.
The resulting forecast is then presented in a variety of formats, such as text, graphics, and maps, to help people understand and prepare for the weather in their area.
