Day 162: Severe Weather Basics May 10, 2007Posted by Admin in Homework, Meteorology.
In starting our week-long unit on severe weather basics and safety, we started with defining and contrasting the two main types of severe weather alerts: watches and warnings. We then discussed the six major types of severe weather: Floods, Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Ice Storms, and Blizzards. We only went into detail on Flooding today – tomorrow we’ll continue by discussing thunderstorms – next week; tornadoes.
Remember – forecasting packets are due tomorrow and there will be a quiz over that material tomorrow too!
