Do It Yourself Forecasting
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Do you know that you can forecast the weather on your own? You don't need any fancy equipment or computers. You only need to use your senses. It's easy!
 
2     Use your sense of sight as you look up into the sky. What color is it? Is it blue or gray? Is the sun shining? What kind of clouds do you see?
 
3     Clouds can tell you a lot about the weather. Thin, wispy, cirrus clouds point in the direction the wind is blowing. They predict fair weather for now and a little while from now. Another fair weather cloud is a cumulus cloud. These look like cotton candy in the air. Maybe you see altocumulus clouds that look like sheep's wool. If you do, you can predict that a cold front is coming. A thunderstorm may be on its way.
