As water vapor particles are carried hire they begin to lose heat energy and become

Colder

1

As they become cold or they lose speed and come

Closer together

2

The particles condense around tiny particles of dust to form clouds when

They are slow down

3

What eventually forms when the water vapor in the atmosphere condenses around tiny particles of dust

Clouds

4

The appearance of a cloud depends on

How Hyatt forms in the atmosphere and what temperature is there

5

What kinds of clouds form at the highest altitude and if your wispy and fudge the fuzzy edges

Cirrus

6

As water vapor condenses and collides, the droplets become very

Dance and sunlight is not allowed to pass through

7

Dense clouds make clouds look

Heavy and dark

8

What kind of clouds are puffy clouds that form at middle altitudes

Cumulus

9

What are clouds that are layered, warm at low altitude, and appear like blanket like layers

Stratus

10

Cloud the forms near the ground

Fog

11

When the air temperature is warm or above freezing water vapor changes into

Liquid precipitation and falls as rain

12

What forms and severe thunderstorm clouds when raindrops collide with bits of ice

Hail

13

What forms one raindrops fall through layer very cold air near the ground

Sleet

14

What forms when the temperature is cold that the water vapor turns directly into a solid

Snow

15

Rain is measured using what

Rain gauge

16

Rain gauge is a container that has the skill marked on it in

17

What is measured by pushing a meter stick or yardsticks for the ground

Snow snow

18

What is the condition of the troposphere at a given play sometime

Weather

19

What is a large region of air that has a similar temperature and humidity

Airmass

20

And air mass that forms above a warm area of water will be

Warm and humid

21

And air mass that forms over a cold area of land will be

Cold and dry

22

Boundary between two air masses is a

The front

23

What a cold air mass runs into a warm air mass the dense heavy cold air

Sinks and pushes up the lighter warm air

24

A boundary between two different air masses were neither one is strong enough to replace the other

Stationary front

25

Ohio today when caused by large temperature differences in air masses

Jetstream

26

Almost all weather fronts in North America move from

West to east

27

A low-pressure system brings

Warm and rainy weather

28

A high-pressure system usually

Dry and clear weather

29

A weather map shows

Weather shows the weather in a specific area at a specific time
