Stormy Weather

Stormy weather can have a dramatic effect on our lives. It is important that we are familiar with the effects of stormy weather and that we are prepared in case of stormy weather so that we can stay safe.

Some types of stormy weather include hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, sandstorms, monsoons, and cyclones. Some of the potentially dangerous effects created by stormy weather are ice, sleet, snow, twisters, lightning, hail, thunder, and strong winds.

A blizzard is a violent snow storm. A monsoon is a system of wind that affects climatic regions and brings large amounts of wind and rain. Sleet is frozen rain or raindrops that are partly frozen

A squall is a short but sudden and violent windstorm, and it is often followed by rain or snow.

A waterspout is like a tornado but has less of a whirlwind and happens over water, making a funnel shape that whirls air and spray. Every three to seven years, the surface of the sea of the southeast tropical Pacific gets to a very hot temperature.

Ocean temperatures have significant effects on the earth’s weather and this is how hurricanes are started as well as other stormy weather.
