What is weather?
It may be hot or cold outside.
It may be sunny, cloudy, or rainy. All these words tell about weather.
The weather is what the air outside is like.
Different kinds of weather
When the air outside changes, the weather changes. The weather may be hot one day and cool the next.
One day may be cloudy and rainy. The next day may be clear and sunny. One day may be very windy. Another day may be calm.
Who studies weather?
A meteorologist is a scientist who studies and predicts the weather.
Meteorologists use sophisticated equipment, like Doppler radar and supercomputers, but they also rely on old-fashioned sky watching.
They observe sky conditions because clouds and wind can help tell how weather is changing.
The temperature is the measure of how hot or cold something is.
Temperature is measured with a tool called a thermometer.
Measure Air Temperature
Use a thermometer. Measure and record the temperature each day. Write about the temperature changes. Tell how the weather changes make the temperature go up and down.

What kind of precipitation are we catching on our tongues?
Clouds and Rain
Clouds are made up of many tiny drops of water. The drops may join and get heavier. When the drops get too heavy, they fall as rain.
What is the forecast?
The forecast is a prediction or guess of what the weather will be.
Scientists look for
patterns in the weather.
They use computers to tell us what weather will happen.

Our Favorite Weather
Can you read this pie graph?
Rain, rain go away… come back another day.
If crows fly low, winds going to blow;
If crows fly high, winds going to die.
Whether it’s cold or whether it’s hot...
We shall have weather, whether or not!
No weather is ill, if the wind is still.
NEWS and weather…they travel together.
