  • 1. What is weather? Refers to the state of the atmosphere at a specific time and place. The one thing that you can talk to anybody about If you don’t like the weather just waitaround it will change in Texas What are some of the factors that affect the weather?
  • 2. Air TemperatureTemperature is themeasure of theaverage amount ofmotion in particles.
  • 3. Winda natural movement ofair of any velocity;especially : the earthsair or the gassurrounding a planet innatural motionhorizontally
  • 4. HumidityThe amount of water vapor present in the airRelative Humidity -is a measure of theamount of water vapor present in the aircompared to the amount needed forsaturation at a specific temperature
  • 5. Clouds Masses of small water droplets or tiny ice crystals that float in the air. Three main types are cirrus, cumulus, and stratus. Other clouds are a mixture of these three main types.
  • 6. Cirrus Cirro- means “curled” or “feathery” Form highest in the sky; are made up of ice crystals; and appear as curls, tufts, or wisps. Usually signal the end of clear weather.
  • 7. Cumulus Cumulo- means “heaped” or “piled” Cottony clouds with flat, usually gray bases, and puffy, bright tops. Usually signal good weather, but if atmosphere is unstable, can build into towering clouds that produce showers and thunderstorms.
  • 8. Stratus Strato- means “layer-like” or “sheet-like.” Low-lying, dull-colored clouds that form in layers or sheets. Usually bring drizzling rain or light-falling snow.
  • 9. Alto A prefix meaning “middle range of clouds “ and used to describe clouds that lie from 6,500-18,500 ft. (1,980-5,640m).
  • 10. Nimbus A rain cloud
  • 11. Other Cloud TypesCirrocumulus CirrostratusStratocumulus Cumulonimbus
  • 12. More Cloud Types AltostratusAltocumulus Nimbostratus
  • 13. Precipitation Water that falls from the clouds Air temperature determines the form of precipitation that falls 4 main types of Precipitation: Rain, Sleet, Snow and Hail
  • 14. Types of Precipitation Rain Sleet Snow Hail
  • 15. Air Masses A large body of air that has properties similar to the part of the Earth’s surface over which it develops.
  • 16. Air Mass Map
  • 17. Fronts A boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature.
  • 18. Cold Front
  • 19. Warm Front
  • 20. Occluded Front
  • 21. Stationary Front
  • 22. Severe WeatherThunderstorms Lightning Tornadoes
  • 23. More Severe WeatherHurricanes Blizzards
  • 24. Severe Weather Safety Watches- conditions are favorable Warnings- conditions already exist Examples- Tornadoes, Flooding, Thunderstorms, Blizzards, Winter Mixes and Hurricanes
  • 25. Lightning
  • 26. Tornado Alley
  • 27. Fujiti Scale
  • 28. Weather Map
  • 29. Hurricane
  • 30. Hurricane Scale
  • 31. Hurricane Charley
  • 32.  Two sources of forecasting weather – Data collected from upper atmosphere – Data collected on the Earth’s surface
  • 33. Weather Station Model
  • 34. Isobars Isobars-connect points of the “same” Examples: temperature and wind speed The further away the lines the lower the wind speed
