W hat´s the weather? 1.- temperature 3.- precipitations It is the state of the atmsphere at a given time and place with respect to variables as ... 2.- wind velocity Measuring weather People who study weather are meteorologist They use tools artificial satellites get information about weather Weathermen gather information and predict weather thermometer rain gauge wind vane barometer anemometer hygrometer Making weather forecast expansion.com
Sunny Intervals Partly Cloudy Very Sunny Sunny Mostly Cloudy Mist and Fog Cloudy Heavy Cloud Showers Rain Thunder Sleet Light Snow Snow Ice Clear Night Partly Cloudy (Night) Mostly Cloudy (Night) Frost (Night) Sleet Light Snow Snow Ice Fair
to get information about weather Satellite to measure the speed of the wind to know the direction of wind is coming to measure air pressure to measure precipitation to measure air temperatura anemometer Barometer Rain gauge Thermometer wind vane to measure humidity in the air Hygrometer
1.-The surface of the earth is heated by light energy from the sun 2.-warmed surface 3.- the warmed surface on Earth heats the air above 4.-When the warmed air is up, the wind cools down the temperature and cools the air 5.-the cold air goes down again 6.-SEA BREEZE EXPLAIN THE DRAWING ABOVE: 1.- ___________________________________________________________________________ 2.-____________________________________________________________________________ 3.-____________________________________________________________________________ 4.-____________________________________________________________________________ 5.-____________________________________________________________________________ 6.- What effect do the sea breeze produce in that cycle? explain your idea. _____________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ METEOROLOGISTS USE TOOLS TO STUDY AIR TEMPERATURE
People who study weather They gather information, predict the weather (make weather forecast) They use tools in order to make weather forecast Meteorologist or weathermen air temperature · depends the season: during the summer months- · the most direct light on Earth · There also more hours of daylight · the Earth´s surface has more time to heat up · The angle of sunlight is much less direct · Solids(land) absorb the sun´s energy quickly than areas cover by water. · the air obove solids is warmer as well. · Land areas close water tent to be cooler than those that are father inland. · The surface of Earth is heated by light energy from the sun. · The heat energy from the warmed surface on Earth heats the air above. air pressure wind · meteoroligists use thermometer to measure temperature · It is the amount of pressure exerted by the weight of the earth´s atmosphere · Living things don´t feel air pressure ·Changes in air temperature cause changes in the air pressure · Low pressure area · High pressure area humidity · can be · as warm air rises, there is less pressure on the surface of the earth · air has weight · The air pressure is different in each place.It depends the amount of heat that each place recives · cooler air moves down · Cool air is heavier than warm air. · cool air exerts more pressure on the surface · meteoroligists use barometers to measure air pressure · the moving air · Meteoroligist use a wind sock or a wind vane to know direction the wind is coming · The arrow of the wind vane tells us the wind is coming from · Meteorologist use anemometers to measure the speed of wind They have to study: · how much water is in the air · When the air is dry, the evaporation of water increases. · When the humidity is hight in the air, the chance of rain or snow increases. · meteorologists use hygrometers to measure humidity
