Weather Terminology

Post by Admin on Sun Apr 12, 2015 4:37 pm

It's spring and in many states spring and summer is tornado and hurricane season.  I'm attaching a list of weather terminology.  You can build your own customized list or add the words one-by-one to your vocabulary.  If the word has many syllables, make a unique word for it.  Remember less syllables, more speed. sunny
