What Makes Weather? - WindCover_Weather_Watch

When air pressure and temperatures change...WHOOSH...wind gets created. Then, when wind gets made...WHOOSH...it causes air pressure and temperature to change. Do you see the relationships?

Measuring Wind:

 

We use an "anemometer" (an-eh-mom-eh-tor) to measure how many miles per hour wind blows.
