Weather Words

A few weeks back, I asked people to fill me in on their favorite weather words. This wasn’t just for personal curiosity; I was planning to use them in the piece to generate morse code melodies. I got way more responses than I would have expected, so I figured I should go the extra mile. So, as a thank you to everyone who shared the words, here are my friends’ favorite weather words as a bass line. The words, in order, are listed below. For someone who is making a piece of music based on the weather, I had to look up a ton of these, which really made my day.
