The temperature that water freezes What is 32 degrees Farenheit One of these is NOT a form of precipitation: Rain Sleet Snow Fog Freezing Rain Hail What is fog? When tiny drops of liquid form in a cloud and get heavier it causes this What is precipitation? Water that falls to the ground after a rainstorm What is collection or runoff? This measures the wind direction What is a weather vane? This measures the amount of precipitation over a period of time What is a rain gauge? This measures the speed of the wind What is an anemometer? This measures the pressure of the atmosphere What is a barometer? This tool measures the air temperature What is a thermometer? When two air masses meet What is a front? The symbols H and L on a map What is High and Low Pressure? A curved line with half circles on a weather map What is a warm front? This front moves a cold air mass out of the way What is a warm front? This is when a cold air mass moves a warm air mass, often bringing thunderstorms or heavy rains What is a cold front? These are “fair weather” clouds What are cumulus clouds? This cloud type does not touch the ground What is fog? These clouds are thin, wispy, and high in the sky What are cirrus clouds? Low to the ground, flat and gray, this cloud type often brings steady rain or snow What is a stratus cloud? Large powerful storms that begin over water What are hurricanes? A scientist who studies weather What is a meteorologist? Movement of air What is wind? The amount of water vapor in the air What is humidity? Two air masses that meet and do not move for several days What is a stationary front? Type of weather caused by updrafts spinning fast, taking on the shape of a funnel What is a tornado?
