The Weather Show
Introducing....The Greatest Show on Earth
it's The Weather Show!
Bring your bathing suits,
don't forget your boots and coats.
Folks, we guarantee the show we perform,
is never dull, if there's a lull,
it's just the calm before the storm.
Watch it change from icey cold to tasty warm.
And rearrange from sunny days to crazy storms.
The curtain's rising we're so glad to have you here.
Come and see a new show daily in the atmosphere
ACT ONE ..... THE SUN!
The sun shines down,
on field and town,
on forest, mountain, desert sea and snow.
Some heat's absorbed,
some bounces off, (ha ha ha)
so here its hot, while there it may be cold.
The heated earth,
heats up the air,
just like a big hot air balloon up, up it floats.
Then cooler air,
sneaks in below,
its heated too now look out folkes 'cause up it goes!
Sinking air is called a high, which means it has high pressure. Low pressure air is on the rise, and as they move together ...
ACT TWO ..... THE WIND!
Those lows and highs,
they sink and rise,
the air begins to move and flow.
at different rates,
and that creates the winds that blow.
The highs are nice,
they bring fair skys, (ah ha)
but a low will often bring you clouds or rain.
And when they come,
they form a front,
a changing of the weather in between.
As the highs and lows push and shove, the weather front begins to move, and if a front moves into town, it means a storm just may come down.
ACT THREE ..... THE HUMIDITY!
Because of heat,
from lakes and rivers, puddles, even trees.
The air can fill,
right to the gills,
with water vapor. That's humidity.
When clouds appear,
rain may be near, (oooh)
'cause the vapors cool and starting to condense.
And if those drops, (oooh)
begin to plop, (plop...plop...plop)
that's precipitation, folks, you all get drenched. (yeaaaa)
That's the weather folks, you got your money's worth.
Hot or cold or soakin' wet, Hey, how lucky can you get.
The weather show's the greatest show, the greatest show on earth!.
