What Will the Weather Be? (Let's-Read-And-Find-Out)by Lynda Dewitt
Synopses & Reviews
Meteorologists today know more than ever before. They use weather maps,satelllites, ballons and planes to measure temperature, air presure,wind direction, and speed. But changes outside are not always predictable because our weather depends on the air hundreds of miles away. Sometimes meteorologists telll us to take our umbrellas when we don't need them. Other times they say we don't need a jacket when we do. Will it rain? Will it snow? Not even the experts know for sure.
Meteorologists today know more about weather than ever before. They use weather maps, satellites, balloons, and planes to measure temperature, air pressure, wind direction and speed. But changes outside are not always predictable. Clear, bright prose explains what the scientists know--and what they sometimes can't know--about our changing weather.
Will it be warm or cold? Should we wear shorts or pants? Shoes or boots? Read and find out why the weather is so difficult to predict.
