Mother Nature, just like the rest of us beings, has its sensual side. AtmoLife is not ashamed to hide our sensuality, and we believe in celebrating #SensualWeather. Below is glossary of real life meteorology terms that are meant to be interpreted however you want to interpret them. *wink emoji* We will continually update this glossary as new terminology is uncovered.

Hoar Frost: “Dammit I got hoar frost all over my bush.”

Mammatus: I don’t even need to make a joke for this. It’s literally Latin for boob clouds.

Moist Adiabat: “Nothing expands a parcel quite like a moist adiabat.”
