Types of weather • Sunny snowy • Cloudy • Windy • Rainy • Stormy
Evaporation: when water turns into a vapor and rises • Condensation: when water vapor condenses back into a liquid • Precipitation: when condensed water falls from the sky Parts of the water cycle
Parts of the water cycle continued • Accumulation: when water from the runoff collects and comes together and forms a lake, ocean, or pond • Runoff: when the water from the mountains forms little streams which then they form rivers. • Infiltration: when water from the runoff seeps into the ground and into the ocean and lakes
Rain can fall from anywhere sometimes rain can fall for a while • Sometimes rain won’t fall for a very long time • If rain falls for too long it can cause flash floods which is dangerous • Here is an example of a flash flood http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kYUpkPTcqPY
Different types of precipitation continued • Snow: a solid form of rain that mainly falls during the winter it is cold and light. • Sleet: a snow like substance but once it touches the air from below it will melt and turn into a mixture of water and snow. this only during the winter and only melts if the ground is above freezing temperatures.
Different types of precipitation • It’s not just rain that falls from the sky there is also hail, snow, sleet, fog, mist, and dew • Hail: a solid form of rain and is formed by a small piece of dust or anything that size that collects moisture from the air during a storm then is turned into a solid by the cold air from above.
