This checkoff list could be used by a scribe to keep track of which Scouts have earned which merit badges or could be used by an individual Scout.

In addition to learning how everyday weather is predicted, Scouts can learn about extreme weather such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes, and how to stay safe.
Printable helps for requirements:
A reader asks about how old a Scout should be to work on a merit badge. The Guide to Advancement provides some answers.
This science program feature offers the opportunity to plan a month’s worth of troop activities with a weather and energy theme.
Tornadoes are destructive storms are caused by a vortex. You can use the classic “tornado in a bottle” demonstration to explain how a vortex forms.

This project will demonstrate the water cycle to scouts. This demonstration can be used with requirement 1 for the Weather belt loop for Cub Scouts or with requirement 6 for the Weather merit badge for Boy Scouts.
