Weather Wiz Kids®. I'm meteorologist Crystal
Wicker. I designed this website especially for kids to allow them to learn more
about the fascinating world of weather. Its also a wonderful educational
website for teachers and parents to give them the right tools to explain the
different types of weather to children.
|Meteorology - The science that deals with the
phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather
Arctic air is now firmly
entrenched over much of the nation's mid-section, Northwest and, finally
Northeast, sending temperatures crashing to values you might expect in
mid-winter in some areas. Last week, heavy snow fell across the Northern Plains
and Upper Midwest. With blocking high pressure aloft over eastern Alaska and
northwest Canada, a direct pipeline of cold air will come from Siberia to near
the North Pole, then southward into Canada and the U.S., particularly the
Plains and Midwest. While not nearly as cold in magnitude, the arctic surges
will also sweep into parts of the East. This is a classic Arctic outbreak
pattern that will remain largely locked in over these areas this week.
Be sure to always have
survival kits in your home
