The atmosphereis a blanket of air surrounding our
planet. Our weather takes place in the bottom layer
called the troposphere.
Weather systems start because the sun’s energy
heats up only parts of the Earth at a time. The planets
axis is at a perfect right angle that allows us to have
When lifted air becomes cooler than its surroundings it sinks and is called stability.Stability and Instability
Evaporation – to change from a liquid or solid state into vaporPrecipitation – to fall to the Earths surface as a condensed form of water, to rain, snow, hail, etc.Condensation – the process by which a gas or vapor changes to a liquid.
With hurricanes and tornadoes, doppler radars are used to record wind speeds and identify areas of rotation within the storm. The faster the speed of wind, the higher level of storm.
But tornadoes also have one devise that is used just for them. The radiosondesare meteorological balloons that send data about tornadoes back to the National Weather Service so they can have it to compare to previous tornadoes.
Tornadoes are a strong, rotating column of air that extends from the base of a cumulonimbus cloud to the ground.
They have winds from 40 mph to the record of 175 mph.
Hurricanes are natural storms that have winds up to 150 mph. They cover a large area over a time that can easily last more than a week, leaving destruction in its wake.
