Quiz – The Weather Edition

Weather

I know I spoke about weather last week, but we’re in the build-up. This is a uniquely tropical season that can be a lot of fun but also an enormous pain. It’s getting hotter and stickier, the clouds are grey and the lightning is pretty. The blackouts are annoying. So we think about the weather a fair bit.

  1. What is La Nina?
  2. What shape are raindrops?
  3. What’s the difference between a cloud and the surrounding air?
  4. What is windburn?
  5. And what’s the picture? Courtesy of Mick Petroff.
Answers on Friday.

Well here goes,
1. La Nina is the opposite of El Niño. I think La Nina means lower than usual sea surface temps which means more rain in Australia.
2. I’m guessing round.
3. Uummmm, cloud has more moisture and I think different electrical charge to the surrounding atmosphere. Think I’m out on a limb with this one!
4. Windburn is where your skin is dehydrated and abraded by wind and get red and sore.  Though I’m sure other things get windburnt too.
5. That’s the Morning Glory cloud from north QLD.
