Weather – Study Questions


When water droplets in a cloud combine, become too heavy, and fall to the ground as rain, snow, sleet, or hail, we are experiencing ____.


Masses of puffy, white clouds, often with flat bases, that form when air currents rise are called ____ clouds.


____ forms when raindrops pass through a layer of freezing air near Earth's surface, forming ice pellets.


____ forms when the air temperature is below freezing and water vapor changes directly to solid.


To keep track of high-and low-pressure areas, weather maps are drawn with lines connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure. These lines are called ____.


Weather expected? are drawn with lines connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure. These lines are called ____.


Clouds form as warm air rises, expands, cools, and becomes saturated, and then ____ condense(s) into tiny drops, which collect.


____ humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor that air is holding compared to the amount needed for saturation at a specific temperature.
