Weather is the condition of the troposphere (the lowest region of the atmosphere). It encompasses several atmospheric phenomena including temperature, wind, cloud cover, humidity, precipitation, and pressure. Weather patterns are affected by ocean-atmosphere interactions. This page contains general real-time weather data for the North Pacific Ocean. For more specific meteorological topics (i.e. atmospheric pressure) go to the specific subject headings (see navigator bar below).
