This is a lesson for a Weather ESL Quiz that will cover the water cycle, and include some storms that produce precipitation.
The water cycle is a continuous process all over the world and is made of three main parts:
Some forms of precipitation are:
- Rain - Big drops of water
- Hail - Balls of frozen water
- Snow - Flakes of frozen water
- Sleet - Partially melted snow
Part of the Weather ESL Quiz will cover severe storms;
Storms form when a warm front and a cold front meet. A cold front is the edge of a mass of cold air, and a warm front is the edge of a mass of warm air. Depending on the season and temperatures, the precipitation that falls may be rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Sometimes, you can see several of these during the same storm, especially in extreme storms.
These are the terms that are key to understanding weather and that will typically be covered in a Weather ESL Quiz.
