Weather; wind vector Illustration of a wind vector, the two- or three-dimensional vector describing the instantaneous wind magnitude and direction at a point (often using Cartesian coordinates; i.e. X and Y wind vectors). The term can also apply to the resultant wind vector which is sometimes drawn as an arrow with length proportional to wind speed. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,wind,speed,direction,arrow

Weather; hurricane (N Hemisphere) Illustration of a hurricane, or tropical cyclone: a storm system characterized by a low pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and flooding rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane, typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. Has counterclockwise rotation in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise rotation in the Southern Hemisphere due to the Coriolis Effect. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,hurricane,typhoon,tropical,storm,cyclonic,storm,tropical,depression,cyclone

High clouds: Cirrocumulus Illustration of a cirrocumulus cloud, a large, white patch or tuft without a gray shadow. Composed of supercooled liquid droplets (if they freeze, becomes cirrostratus - cirrocumuli are short lived) Each cloudlet appears no larger than a finger held at arms length. It occurs in patches or sheets, organized in rows like other cumulus, but since they are so small, cirrocumulus patches take on a finer appearance, sometimes referred to colloquially as "herringbone" or "mackerel". symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,cloud,herringbone,mackerel,sky
