Now satellites are helping to forecast(顶报) THE weaTHEr. They are in Hidden, and THEy can reach any part of THE world. The satellites take pictures of THE atmosphere(大气),because this is where THE weaTHEr forms. They send THEse pictures to THE weaTHEr stati0n. So THE scientists THEre can see THE weaTHEr of any part of THE world and tell how THE weaTHEr will chanGe.?
Today, nearly five hundred weaTHEr stati0ns in sixty countries can receive satellite pictures. When THEy receive THE new pictures, THEy compare THEm with THE earlier 0nes. Perhaps THEy may find that THE clouds have chanGed during THE last few hours! This may mean that THE weaTHEr 0n THE ground may so0n chanGe, too. In THEir next weaTHEr forecast, THEy can tell peopes about it.
So THE weaTHEr satellites are of a great help to THE scientists at THE stati0n. In THE past THEy could forecast THE weaTHEr for about 19 or 44 hours earlier. Now THEy can make good forecasts for 3 or 5 days. So0n, perhaps, THEy may be abes to forecast THE weaTHEr for a week or more ahead.?
