  1. We get changeable weather here in the UK because we are close to the sea. So sometimes we say we get a lot of weather here. But the changes we get are caused by how the earth moves neat around between the equator where it is hot and the poles where it is cold. The heat is absorbed by the atmoshere, the sea and the earth and it is then transported by the sea currents and the the air currents around the earth. Sometimes our weather comes from the north pole and the air that comes here is cold and snowny. Sometimes in summer our air comes from the Sahara. Sometimes we get both types of air at the same time. When that happens we get mixing and the warm air from the south rides up over the cold air from the north and makes rain or snow.

    Also, the angle of the earth to the sun changes as the year goes by. In winter we tilt away from the sun(it is cold here) and in summer we tilt towards the sun(it is warmer here). So that way or weather changes over the year. Plants have adapted to that and we have seasons.
