I didn’t know (or couldn’t remember the formula from the meteorology course I took in college) so I turned to YouTube where I quickly found this short explanatory video from Presh Talwalkar.

There is obviously a math lesson waiting to happen here. But that lesson could be part of a larger assignment in which students develop weather forecasts and produce them as videos to share on a school or classroom website.
