Presentation on theme: "Wind is always named by where it is coming from! It is called a NORTH wind because it is moving from the north to the south. What would a wind be named."— Presentation transcript:
1.Land heats up faster than water. 2.Warm air over land rises. 3.Air over water moves to shore. 4.Would occur during the day. 5.Named a SEA breeze because it comes from the sea. http://www.coolweather.co.uk/
1.Land cools off faster than water. 2.Warm air over water rises. 3.Cool air from land takes its place. 4.Would occur at night. 5.Called a LAND breeze because the wind is coming from the land. http://www.coolweather.co.uk/
Look at these two diagrams. Can you tell which is the land breeze and which is the sea breeze?
1. Blow steadily from the same direction all the time. 2. The path is curved because of the Coriolis Effect. http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu
Jet Stream 1.In the upper troposphere. 2.Very fast 200-400 kmh 3.Go completely around the earth.
Notice that the jet stream does not stay the same every day. But it is always there!
http://www.wildlandschool.net Clouds from when the water vapor reaches the dew point. Remember that as you go up in the troposphere, the temperature decreases. Dew point
If the dew point temperature is the same as the air temperature on the ground, fog forms!
Any form of H 2 O that falls from clouds and reaches the earth's surface.
The term rain is restricted to drops of water that fall from a cloud and have a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeter. Drizzle and mist have smaller droplets. The most common form of precipitation is rain.
Stratus – flat layer of clouds. Often have rain.
Cumulonimbus clouds often produce bad weather (lightning and hail) Nimbus means rain. Notice that it is getting flat on the top. That means the top of the cloud has reached the top of the troposphere and cannot go any higher. http://www.colby.edu/
