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.


Weather Tools


Wind vane

Rain gauge



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.



  • Moving air is called wind.
  • Wind can push things.
  • Sometimes the wind blows gently and sometimes it blows hard.

  • General name for water in any form falling from clouds. This includes rain, drizzle, hail, snow and sleet. Although, dew, frost and fog are not considered to be precipitation.

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.


Weather Events

  • Thunderstorm - A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always has lightning and thunder. Rain, hail and high winds may or may not occur.
  • Tornado- It begins as a funnel cloud with spinning columns of air that drop down from a severe thunderstorm. When they reach the ground they become tornadoes.
  • Hurricane- They are intense storms with swirling winds up to 150 miles per hour. Usually around 300 miles across, they are 1,000 to 5,000 times larger than tornadoes.

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.


Weather in September

  • What type of weather occurred most?
  • What type occurred least?
  • Were there more rainy days or windy days in September?
  • How many days did it snow?

Our Favorite Weather

  • Which is the most favorite?

  • Which types of weather are equal?

Weather Folklore

  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.

Georgia Performance Standards

S1E1. Students will observe, measure, and communicate weather data to see patterns in weather and climate.

a. Identify weather by observing types of weather and the characteristics of each type.

b. Investigate weather by observing, measuring with simple weather instruments( thermometer, wind vane, rain gauge), and recording weather data ( temperature, precipitation, sky conditions, and weather events).

c. Correlate weather data to seasonal changes.

M1D1. Students will create simple tables and graphs and interpret them.

a. Interpret tally marks, picture graphs and bar graphs.

b. Organize and record data using objects, pictures, tally marks, and picture graphs.
