Summary
Abstract: A Basic Introduction To Weather Symbols is a web-based educational resource on weather symbols used by meteorologists. A meteorologist must convey a lot of information without using a lot of words. When looking at a weather map, a meteorologist needs to know where the cold air is, where the warm air is, where it is raining, what type of clouds are in the area, and many more things. The reason for this is that forecasts need to be accurate. But, they also need to be timely.
