Student Research Pages - What Makes Weather? - Wind
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?
We use an "anemometer" (an-eh-mom-eh-tor) to measure how many miles per hour wind blows.
Northers ... Special Texas Winds!
Remember a time when the wind suddenly turned really cold?! Wasn’t that weird!?! A norther had arrived! A mass of cold air from the north can drop Texas temperatures lickety split! Brrrrrr!!!
