1 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience?

2 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Weather- what is going on outside right now. The current temperature, barometric pressure and wind conditions.

3 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Climate- is the average of the weather in a given place over a long period of time.

4 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? l Air pressure is the weight of the air resting on a given area of Earths surface.

5 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? In a low pressure system, the pressure of the air is lower than the air around it. The air is less dense. Stormy/Cloudy weather occurs in a low pressure system.

6 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? In a high pressure system the pressure of the air is higher than that of the air around it. (Its more dense.) Clear weather occurs in a high pressure system.

7 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Front- A boundary where two air masses meet that differ in temperature, pressure, and/or humidity.

8 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Cold front- cold air replaces warm air and can bring in severe weather/thunderstorms.

9 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Warm Front-Fronts that bring warm air, as warm air moves, it is lifted above the cooler air and starts to cool down, water vapor forms clouds which creates precipitation.

10 Topic: Weather Essential Question: What is the cause of the weather we experience? Atmospheric Movement- This is the large scale movement of air throughout the atmosphere. This movement is one of the ways weather moves around our planet.

11 Now take some time… Take 2 minutes to go over your notes and highlight or underline the main ideas that answer the essential question, you should not highlight everything.

12 Time to use the left hand column You will now write your own questions using the question starters provided.
