A Science Invitation...

I invite you to check out Weather 101, located on the main weather page below the 7-day forecast discussion.

Just look for the "Weather 101" banner.

These are short computer-generated animations ("science snippets") one to two minutes in length, with me as your host.
They might explain a principle in the atmosphere, or test your weather history, or define a mysterious meteorological term.
 
A multiple choice question is asked followed by the graphical presentation.
The correct answer is given at the end.
 
The topics currently posted include:
 
What is a hook echo?
 
Where was the most destructive U.S. tornado?
 
What is the “cap” you always hear about?
 
How does hail form?
 
What is a gust front?
 
How does fog form?
 
What is subsidence?
 
What is a squall line?
 
Frozen Clouds
 
Each Weather 101 is geared towards all ages from 10 and up.
 
I hope that you will find them interesting.
 
Enjoy!
