Meet Mrs. Flook
Most of Earth’s air and weather are in the bottom layer of the atmosphere called the troposphere.
When cool air is next to warm air, the cool air sinks and forces the warm air to rise.
The jet stream is a band of fast wind formed by the different temperatures between convention currents.
An air mass is a large body of air with the same temperature and amount of water vapor.
Winds move air masses from place to place.
A front is a boundary between two air masses.
Thunderstorms, tornadoes, blizzards, and hurricanes are all forms of severe weather.
Lightning is a large electrical spark moving between areas of opposite electrical charge.
A severe storm watch means that severe thunderstorms might form.
A severe storm warning means that severe thunderstorms have formed. You should prepare for them. Get inside as soon as possible.
A tornado forms when layers of wind blows at different speeds and directions.
To prepare for a hurricane, board up windows, store food, water, and get a flashlight.
Instruments are used to forecast the weather.
A rain gauge measures how much rain has fallen.
An anemometer measures wind speed.
A barometer measures air pressure.
A thermometer measures the temperature.
Climate is the average of weather conditions over a long period of time, usually 30 years.
Climates have changed throughout history.
