TORNADOES
(1)

rapidly whirling funnel-shaped clouds
that reach down from a storm cloud
to touch Earth’s surface.

Form from cumulonimbus clouds.

Wind speeds can reach 500 km/h (300
mph)

These are NOT predictable and
usually last less than 15min.

TORNADOES
THUNDERSTORMS
(2)

MOST COMMON form of
severe weather.

Form when a cold front
meets a warm air mass.

Warm air is rapidly pushed
up and form huge clouds.

As the warm air rises, it
cools and forms dense
thunderheads.

HURRICANES (3)

large swirling low
pressure systems that
form over tropical
oceans.

get their energy from
the warm waters.

start out as tropical
storms that grow in
size and strength.

/player/lesson14.html

wind speeds hit 120
km/h (74+ mph) the
tropical storm is called
a hurricane

cooler air sinks over
the land so they
gradually lose strength
and slow down


Happens when water
overflows normally
dry land.
Excessive rain, broken
dams, rapid ice
melting.
Most take hours or
days to develop, but
some happen with
little warning.
Floods cause a lot of
expensive damage and
are very dangerous!
Classwork (Summative)

Making a weather brochure!
◦ Use only One type of severe weather.
◦ The Front should be title and picture.
◦ Section One: Where, why, and how it forms.
◦ Section Two: How to prepare for event and/or stay safe
◦ Section Three: Facts, Interesting Things, Current Events
