A station model is usually defined as the symbolic representation of various elements that describes the weather pattern occurring in any particular area. Each symbol signifies a particular weather element. These elements include atmospheric pressure and temperature, humidity content in the air, wind speed and wind direction, cloud cover, and dew point. These data, after obtaining, it helps in understanding the type of weather existing in a particular location. In addition to this, it also helps in predicting the amount of precipitation that might occur in that area, and also the possibility of occurrence of any storm.
All these data are plotted in a single piece of paper, thereby occupying less amount of space. So it is very convenient for the meteorologists to use the station models in order to describe the weather pattern in an area.
