Energy from the sun
warms the water on
the earth causing it
to do this
What is
evaporate?
Clouds are made up
of this
What are tiny
drops of water or
water vapor?
One of these is NOT a
form of precipitation:
Rain
Sleet
Snow
Fog
Freezing Rain
Hail
What is fog?
As more and more
tiny droplets of
liquid form in a
cloud, they combine
and get heavier
causing this
What is
precipitation?
As warm moist air
rises, it begins to
cool, which causes
the water vapor in
the air to do this
What is condense?
This measures the
wind direction
What is a
weather vane?
This measures the
amount of
precipitation
What is a
rain gauge?
This measures the
speed of the wind
What is an
anemometer?
This measures the
force exerted by the
weight of the air
What is a
barometer?
This measures the
amount of water
vapor in the air
What is a
hygrometer?
The boundary
between two air
masses
What is a
front?
The direction air
masses generally
move in the US
What is from
west to east?
A curved line with
rounded bumps on a
weather map
What is a
warm front?
This is associated
with a very rapid
weather change
What is a
cold front?
This is when a cold air mass
pushes out a warm air
mass, often bringing
thunderstorms, or heavy
rains, followed by sunshine
and cool weather
What is a
cold front?
These are “fair
weather” clouds
What are cirrus and
cumulus clouds?
This cloud type is the
closest to the ground
What is fog?
This type of cloud
is 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?
Starting over the Atlantic
Ocean near the Gulf of
Mexico and the
Caribbean, these are the
largest and most
powerful of storms
What are
hurricanes?
A scientist who
studies weather
What is a
meteorologist?
Movement
of air
What is wind?
Instruments in space
that collect weather
data and take pictures
of cloud cover
What are
weather
satellites?
This is associated
with low or falling
air pressure
What is
rain or snow?
This indicates that
there is clear, cooler
weather ahead
What is a rising
barometer?
