Weather occurences

Tornado-Fast moving air meets slower moving air-Winds roll over each other and begin to spin-Vortex is formed as column grows in speed and sizehttp://tornado-facts.com

Thunderstorm-Uplifiting of warm, humid air leads to the growth of cumulonimbus clouds-Electric charges in clouds cause thunder and lightening http://www.hko.gov.hk/education/edu01met/wxphe/ele_thunderstorme.htmhttp://buzzerg.com/388263-riding-on-the-hill-in-a-thunderstorm-id-198998.htm

Dust Devils (Whirlwinds)-Smaller version of a tornado-Form from hot air right above the Earth's surface-Winds pick up dust as they spinhttp://dangerouspowerofnature.blogspot.com/2014/05/dust-devil.html

Wind Storm-Convection increases winds-Strong winds cause damage and lift sedimenthttp://kashmirpost.org/?p=637

Heat Wave-High pressure systems trap air-As the air warms, it cannot rise, so it just gets hotter and hotterhttp://scijinks.jpl.nasa.gov/heat/http://www.wisegeek.com/why-do-things-look-wavy-in-the-heat.htm#didyouknowout

Dust Storm-Strong winds lift and carry dust and other particles, whipping them into a destructive masshttp://www.ask.com/science/dust-storms-form-aa64f56939dccbd1https://www.pinterest.com/pin/458663543273592379/

Blizzard-Rising, warm air and moisture cause clouds and precipitation-Temperatures below freezing cause snow-High winds are often involvedhttp://superstormsonyx41.weebly.com/blizzards.htmlhttp://pixshark.com/snow-blizzard-night.htm

Hurricane-Warm air above ocean rises, creating low pressure zone below-New air fills in the low pressure zone-The hot, warm air builds and begins to spinhttp://spaceplace.nasa.gov/hurricanes/en/http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/natural-disasters/hurricane-profile/

Sleet-Layer of air near the ground drops below freezing, while the layer of air above it is warmer-Rain or melted snow freezes before hitting the groundhttp://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/encyclopedia/sleet/?ar_a=1http://www.movdata.net/sleet.html

Hail-Thunderstorm updrafts bring water droplets past the freezing level-Hailstones grow as additional water freezes to themhttp://pmm.nasa.gov/education/content/how-does-hail-formhttp://www.extremestorms.com/hailstorm.htm
