This storyboard does not have a description.
The water cycle carries Earth's water in a whole process which affects weather.
Weather is influenced on many levels by precipitation in the atmosphere.
While the ocean and areas of land are the prime drivers of wind, water in the atmosphere stores heat, which can create and redirect it.
Weather is largely driven by warm masses of air interacting with cold masses, and the water cycle has a major impact on air temperature.
Solar energy is absorbed from the ocean, and this evaporated water brings heat with it.
Large lakes mitigate hot and cold temperatures. Without the water cycle, freshwater lakes would drain over time, and they rely on regular rainfall to stay filled. This is how the water cycle affects weather.
