  • Welcome back to the fort!

  • Squeaks and I are spending the day insidebecause it's raining!

  • It rained yesterday too, and I remember that, because I wrote it down in my weather journal.

  • My weather journal is where I write down what the weather is like every day.

  • Do you keep a weather journal? Well, you can!

  • It's easy!

  • Each day, you just look out your window or step outside, and see what the weather is

  • like. Then, you write it down--or draw a picture, like Squeaks does--of what you see.

  • There are a few different kinds of weather to look for.

  • It can be rainy, like it is today.

  • Or sunny, when the sun is high in the sky, and shining bright.

  • Or when there's no sun, but lots of clouds, that's cloudy!

  • There's also snowy, when snowflakes fall from the sky.

  • And windy, when you might need to hold onto your hat!

  • Weather can be unpredictable, it's hard to guess what's gonna happen next.

  • It can be cloudy one day and sunny the next.

  • But over long periods of time, weather often follows certain patterns.

  • For example, it might be mostly sunny in the summer, but it might snow a lot in the winter.

  • So depending on what season it is where you live, the weather might have a certain pattern.

  • If you're in the middle of a season, like summer, you might notice it's sunny and

  • warm for five days in a row.

  • That's a pattern!

  • But if the season is changing, the weather might not follow a pattern that's easy

  • to guess.

  • Say, if winter is ending, you might find that a few days are colder and windier, but then

  • the next few days are sunny and warm.

  • That's because the season is changing, going from a chillier winter to a warmer spring.

  • That's why I like to keep a weather journal, to see what weather patterns I can observe for myself!

  • Scientists who study the weather every day, as their job, are called meteorologists.

  • But you don't have to be a meteorologist to watch the weather where you live.

  • In fact, all you need is a notebook, a pencil or crayonand a thermometer!

  • Besides going outside to see and feel what the weather is like, you can also look at

  • a thermometer to find out more about the weather.

  • This is a thermometer--it tells you what the temperature is outside -- how hot or cold it is.

  • The higher the liquid is inside of the thermometer, the hotter it is outside. And the lower

  • the liquid is, the colder it is outside.

  • If you want to keep a weather journal like I do, then you might want to see if your family

  • can get an outdoor thermometer, to help you record the temperature.

  • Then, every day, you can look outside and write down what you see -- or draw a picture!

  • Next, look at the temperature on your thermometer and write down how hot or cold it is.

  • Just look for the line on the thermometer that's closest to the top of the liquid.

  • That's your temperature!

  • I like to write in my weather journal at the same time every day, right after breakfast.

  • You can pick a time that works for you, and observe the weather at that same time every

  • day for five days.

  • After five days, look back through your weather journal, what was the weather like this

  • week? Did you see any patterns?

  • Can you guess what the weather might be like on the sixth day, based on what you've

  • seen already?

  • Share your journal with your friends! And, if you want, you can keep observing the weather

  • for more than five days.

  • If you watch the weather for, say, a whole month, you'll be able to watch the weather

  • change.

  • In fact, you'll probably see at least of few of the different types of weather that we talked

  • about earlier -- a mix of sunny, cloudy, and rainy days.

  • And if you keep your weather journal for a whole year, you'll be able to see the

  • weather where you live at its hottest and its coldest.

  • And you'll have a list -- either in your words or your pictures -- of everything that

  • happened that year.

  • Then you will know when the first snow of winter was,

  • The highest and lowest temperatures of the year,

  • And if it rained more some times the year, than others.

  • So grab your notebook and get outside, it's time to watch the weather!

  • Thanks for joining us on SciShow Kids,

  • And remember, if you have a question for any of us here at the fort, let us know by leaving

  • a comment or emailing us at, and we'll see you next time.
