It's when an atmosphere flows...

Wind, tornados, hurricanes, etc.

Atmospheric flows are driven by temperature changes.
Hot during the Day, Cold at Night,
Hot at the Equator, Cold at the Poles.
Hot air rises, cold air falls.
Add in the Coriolis effect (due the rotation of the Earth)
and the spherical shape,
and you have the weather...
