Weather - Wind

  1. 1. Weather Wind
  2. 2. What is wind and how is it measured? ~ Turn and Talk about what you think wind is. ~ SHARE what you came up with as a class
  3. 3. What is wind and how is it measured? - NOTES Wind is moving air. Weather tools measure two properties of wind - direction and speed.
  4. 4. Measuring Wind - NOTES A weather vane spins freely in the wind and points in the direction from which the wind is blowing. If a wind vane points east, the wind is blowing from the east.
  5. 5. Measuring Wind - NOTES An anemometer measures wind speed - how fast the wind is blowing. * This tool has several arms that stick out from a central rod. There is a cup at the end of each arm. Wind blows into the cups and spins the anemometer. The anemometer counts how many times it spins in a given period of time. The faster the wind is blowing, the faster the anemometer spins.
  6. 6. How is wind produced? Differences in air temperatures and when air moves from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. Storms that contain high winds are: Blizzards, Tornadoes, and Hurricanes
