What Is Weather For Kids?
What Shape is the Earth?
What shape is the Earth? The weather is influenced by the fact that the Earth is round. The Earth is round and the Sun hits different parts of it at different times of the day.
The weather is the state of the atmosphere in a given place. Climate is the average of weather conditions over a long period. People care about the weather.
It affects their comfort and safety. Precipitation is a part of the weather. Rain, hail, sleet, and snow can all be precipitation.
The weather is the condition of the environment at any time. The weather could be sunny with a clear sky, but there could be clouds and rain tomorrow. The weather is a long term pattern.
It is the average pattern of weather conditions for a specific region over a period of time. The climate of a region would show the long term behavior of the weather in that region, even if it is changing everyday. Climate and weather are similar to your personality.
The weather is important for kids no matter where they live. It could be in the middle of the desert or in the tropics. As they grow up, children start to notice the different temperatures throughout the year, as they embark on a journey to look for signs of rainstorms or wait for spring to come.
Air pressure changes in the area are what control the weather events. The air pressure is caused by the weight of air. Skies are usually clear and blue when air pressure is high.
The high pressure causes air to flow down and fan out when it is close to the ground. When air pressure is low, air flows together and then upward, where it forms clouds. Local or regional weather forecasts are developed by meteorologyologists.
The weather events that are happening over a broad region are taken into account by the best forecasts. Knowing where storms are now can help predict where storms will be tomorrow and the next day. The process of looking over a large area is aided by the network of weather observations.
The unpredictable nature of the atmosphere means that it will be impossible to predict the weather more than two weeks in advance, but new technologies combined with more traditional methods are allowing forecasters to develop better and more complete forecasts. Climate is the average weather pattern over several decades. Different regions have different climates.
Solar storms reach Earth in minutes
Solar storms can reach Earth in minutes. Scientists make predictions about when solar storms will occur and how strong they will be. You can check the space weather forecast just like you would the weather forecast.
Climate is more than just one or two rainy days. The climate describes the weather conditions that are expected in a region. Some parts of the planet are warming faster than others.
Statistical Forecasting of Air Temperature
There are transition zones between different air masses. A cold front brings a rapid drop in temperature and a rise in pressure. It is accompanied by snow and storms in the winter.
It is followed by clearing skies. The warm air mass tends to get ahead of the cold air mass. An anticyclone is a different type of storm.
The winds of anticyclone travel outward. They spin the Northern Hemisphere and in the Southern Hemisphere. The anticyclones are associated with dry weather.
Wind direction may be associated with temperature changes. Warming winds from the south usually bring rising temperatures, while northerly winds usually bring falling temperatures. The Southern Hemisphere has the opposite.
Under cloudless skies temperatures can vary greatly, while clouds keep temperatures consistent. The significance of atmospheric pressure in weather forecasting is limited. If a correction is made for a normal fall in pressure that occurs during the midday hours, it does matter.
Climate and the Earth
Climate can be changed by factors such as altitude, latitude or ocean currents. For years, atmospheric temperature, pressure, wind, humidity and precipitation are needed to determine a climate data. Explain to kids how weather and climate can affect them in different ways. Tell them that the climate is determined by the weather that a certain area has during a certain time of the year.
The rainbow and storms
Children are scared of storms but they love jumping in puddles of water and looking at the rainbow after a storm has passed. Children can easily relate to weather and discuss it with their parents, so teaching them about science is a great way to teach them. Children's lives are affected by weather and climate every day.
