Fantastic Weather Facts

Hurricanes and storms have not always been given official names. The practice of naming them did not officially begin until 1953.

On average there are approximately 1800 thunderstorms occurring on Earth at the exact same time along with 100 lighting strikes every second.

A single lighting bolt causes the air around it to heat to around 30,000 degrees Celsius which is 5 times hotter than the surface of the sun.

Each minute of every day, 1 billion tons of rain falls to the Earth’s surface.

Raindrops can only fall so fast, just like you can only run so fast or how fast a car can actually go. The fastest a raindrop can possibly hit you is 18mph.
