When I watched meteorologist, Hayley LaPoint…

When you’ve had a chance to watch the video, leave a comment sharing what you learned or what you thought was interesting.  I’m curious to find out how many different things we’ll collect and discover.  At the end of the video she asked if you have questions for her.  If you do, leave those in your comment as well.  At the end of the day on Monday, I’ll collect all your comments and questions in one document and send it to her.  Hopefully we can get a response.

Weather is pretty interesting!

  1. These are some of the facts I learned from the video,
    1. Cirrus clouds are made out of ice
    2. Lightning is 5 times hotter than the surface of the sun
    3. Hale can be the size of baseballs

  2. I learned hail can be big as baseballs and it can break a car windshield! Also why are clouds grey when water forms in them? Not clear! Because rain is clear!

    • I think you might have missed the first Mystery Science video where Doug showed us why clouds are clear even though they are made of water. They water particles are super small but look white like the tops of waves when they crash or how waterfalls look. The get gray and darker when there is so much water condensed in them, that they can hold no more and then precipitation happens. I’ll post the link to that video up so you can see it. Thanks for asking. Great thinking!

  3. I learned that below freezing is 32 degrees, you can go in a car when there is lightning because it’s steel and lightning will avoid it, lightning is hot, and the water you drink a dinosaur might have drank.
    My question for Mrs. LaPoint is how big can clouds get?

  4. I learned that freezing is 32 degrees. I learned that meteorologists don’t study meteors, but they do study tornadoes. They also study water.
    My question is: do you like rainstorms?

    • Hi Max, I am thrilled to find you here and glad you had the opportunity to learn from Hayley LaPoint.
      I wonder what she will give you for an answer. Are there different answers for different types of rain.
      I hope to “see” you on Monday, or even tomorrow…
      take care!
