Sample flash cards in this set:
|Front:||a meeting place where two air masses meet.|
|Thunderstorm:||is a rainstorm that includes lightning and thunder.|
|Air Mass||is a large region of air that has a similar temperature and humidity.|
|Tornado:||is a rotation funnel-shaped cloud that contains winds that blow up to 480 kilometers per hour|
|Air Mass||Cold, warm, dry or moist Covers thousands of square kilometers Is warm and humid if it forms above a warm area Is cool and dry if it is formed above a cold area|
|Weather||is affected by the air mass that passes through an area|
|Thunderstorms||Fronts, Thunderheads and Precipitation|
|Tornado||Thunderstorm can turn into a tornado given the right conditions.|
|Tornado Alley||It is where cold dry air from Canada meets the moist and warm air from the Gulf of Mexico.|
|Tornado Alley||The states affected are: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota and Colorado.|
|Fujita Scale||the Fujita Tornado Intensity Scale, a scale used to measure the strength of a tornado based on the damage it produces.|
|Hurricanes||is a severe tropical cyclone having winds greater than 64 knots (74 miles per hour; 119 kilometers per hour),|
|Hurricanes||It originates in the equatorial regions of the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea or eastern regions of the Pacific Ocean, traveling north, northwest, or northeast from its point of origin|
|Tropical Cyclone||is a rapidly-rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain.|

|Ground Fog||is formed when clear cool night occur after a sunny day.|
|Forecast||is to make your best guess before something happens.|
|Weather Forecasting||is dependent upon many variables such as: wind speed and air pressure.|
|Meteorologist||is a scientist who specializes in the study of Earth's atmosphere and weather.|
|Eye of a Storm||The center of the storm or "eye" is the calmest part. It has only light winds and fair weather.|
|Hurricanes||are also called typhoon, tropical storm and cyclone, only form over really warm ocean water of 80°F or warmer.|
