Types of Extreme Weather
The printable pack includes pages for your student to learn about the following types of severe weather:
A blizzard is a wintry storm that includes heavy snowfall, ice, and freezing temperatures. High winds are present in a blizzard that cause low visibility.
Dust storms happen in dry areas. When strong gusts of wind sweep across the land, they carry large amounts of dust with them.
Flooding happens when there is a huge amount of rainfall in a short amount of time. As a result, water overflows an area because it cannot be absorbed into the land.
Hurricanes (also known as cyclones) are a type of extreme weather. These giant tropical storms include strong winds (over 160 miles per hour!) and heavy rains which can drop over 2.4 trillion gallons of rain each day.
A thunderstorm includes heavy rainfall, thunder, lightning, and sometimes hail.
A tornado is a funnel of air that spins quickly. A tornado typically moves at about 10-20 miles per hour, but it can go rapidly (up to 250 miles per hour!). A tornado includes strong winds, rain, and sometimes even hail.
