There are six main meteorology tools. First,there is the anemometer. This tool measures wind speed. Next, there is the thermometer. This tool is the most common known tool. It measures temperature. The liquid inside is called mercury. When mercury gets heated, it expands and goes up. You can measure air pressure with a barometer. The barometer looks just like a stopwatch. Another tool is the weather balloon. The weather balloon goes up higher into the atmosphere and looks at the weather. Then there is a rain gauge. It is like a measuring cup. Rain goes into it and you can see how much has fallen. Last but not least is the weather satellite. It takes pictures of the weather on earth from space.
