That branch of meteorology which deals with optical, electrical, acoustical, and thermodynamic phenomena of atmospheres, their chemical composition, the laws of radiation, and the explanation of clouds and precipitation. As generally accepted, it does not include mathematical theory of the motions of the atmosphere and the forces responsible therefore (which matters fall in the field of dynamic meteorology). Also called atmospheric physics.

Subdivisions of physical meteorology include atmospheric electricity, cloud physics, precipitation physics, atmospheric acoustics, and atmospheric optics.
