    •  
    • Scientists and weather forecasters use weather maps to help them see weather patterns.
    • They place symbols on the maps to help them see what is going on with the weather in various parts of the country.
    • Weather Maps: Doppler Radar Maps
    • Weather Maps: Pressure & Temperature
    • A Cold Front symbol shows the edge of a mass of cool air.
    • A Warm Front symbol shows the edge of a warmer air mass.
    • A Stationary Front means neither the warm air or the cool air are moving very much.
    • How many fronts can you identify on this map?
    • A large “H” means an area of higher pressure. Higher pressure usually means nice, clear weather. H
    • Which state has high pressure?
    • A large “L” means an area of lower pressure. Lower pressure usually means clouds, rain, or snow. L
    • How many “Lows” are on this map?
    • What are they? What do they do?
      • Thermometer
      • Wind Vane
      • Anemometer
      • Barometer
      • Rain Gauge
      • A thermometer is
      • a weather tool used to measure the temperature.
      • By observing wind vanes, we can know the direction of the wind. Knowing the direction of the wind is an important part in predicting the weather.
      • Wind speed is an important part of weather.
      • An anemometer is a weather tool that measures wind speed.
      • Barometers are important to measuring air pressure. Air pressure can help you predict good or bad weather.
      • A rain gauge is a weather tool used to collect rain.
      • Using measurements on the side of the rain gauge, you can see how many inches it rained.
