What Should You Understand by Inclement Weather?

By weather is meant the atmospheric condition of place, whether it is hot or cold or rainy or humid; in more simple words, weather refers to the daily temperature and precipitation activity of a particular geographical area. Though this is often mistakably used synonymously with climate yet there is slight difference in the two. Jim Byrne KCOY Weatherman who is an ex chief meteorologist of the KCOY CBS -12 has considerable knowledge about the way in which weather is distinct from climate.


Experts like him will be able to properly elaborate on how the climate of a place is measured by keeping a track of the weather of the specific area over a period of several years, 30 years, to be precise. His deep understanding of weather and close to accurate forecasts has earned him the title of “Weather Guy”. The meteorologists like Jim Byrne KCOY Weatherman are able to comprehend the changing patterns of the weather and inform the masses at large about it through various forms of technology.

For anyone planning to go out either for work or for leisure, weather plays a very significant role, and so it is always better to get an update of the weather before venturing out to any place, because for all you know you could fall prey to unfavorable weather conditions or an inclement weather. The inclement weather is basically a hazardous weather condition which is not at all suitable for anyone who is traveling. It mostly refers to a cold and wet weather that is very severe and harsh, and one that includes the occurrence of storms, snow and other natural hazards related to the same.

It is the climate and the geographical location of a place that is responsible for its inclement weather. The various types of inclement weather that are extremely dangerous and risky for driving in particular are:

Heavy rainfall – this kind of weather obscures the view of a driver and thereby becomes perilous for the driver as well as the other passengers in the vehicle (if there are any). The roads too become excessively slipping, increasing the danger of sliding or skidding of the wheels.

Snow – the falling of snow is hazardous for ay driver, irrespective of its amount. The piling up of snow blocks roads and makes it impossible to reach your destination. Just like heavy rainfall, heavy snowfall too obstructs the vision of the driver.

Ice- the precipitation in the form of ice makes the roads very slippery and drastically reduces the friction of the tiers of the vehicle.

Hail – is capable of damaging the road signs leaving the driver clueless about the conditions of the road.

Blizzards – these snow storms result in acute accumulation of snow and ice on the roads.

Tornadoes and Hurricanes – these rough winds carry huge amounts of debris along with them making the occurrence of accidents inevitable.

Moreover the dust storms and lightning storms could also prove to rather dangerous for anyone who is traveling to any place. It is hence very crucial for you to keep yourself updated about the weather conditions of the place you are at or wish to travel or drive to.
