What is the Meaning & Definition of Tempest

The word tempest is used to refer mainly to meteorological phenomena that arise relatively abruptly and which are made up by heavy rains, clouds, Thunder and lightning, possible fall of hail and other elements that help to generate a sense of chaos. The storms are known to happen at sea, while their urban peers known more named storms. Anyway, both phenomena are similar and can be considered storms if they involve some degree of disorder or violence.
The storms are weather events that don't happen permanently if not generated from certain conditions and then disappear. Some of them can be long-lasting, but one of the main features of the tempest is precisely the fact that it breaks abruptly and therefore tends to assume great power and energy that lasts not longer hours or long days. Storms are not usually as lasting as if they can be simple rainfall which in some cases may remain for a long time.
A storm will generate have to an imbalance between the pressure of two contiguous areas, being the center of low pressure and high pressure space surrounding. This imbalance creates clouds and clouds, in addition to very strong winds. These clouds are also very heavy and contain a significant concentration of water which then fall as rain (not as any rain if not, due to wind and low temperature, as violent).
The storms tend to be very problematic for the human being, whether you are on land or at sea. This is so since this situation implies a confrontation of the human being with difficult to control forces of nature.
