Welcome to Weather Wiz Kids®. I'm meteorologist Crystal Wicker. I designed this website especially for kids to allow them to learn more about the fascinating world of weather. It’s also a wonderful educational website for teachers and parents to give them the right tools to explain the different types of weather to children.
Meteorology - The science that deals with the phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather conditions.

StarWEATHER HEADLINES
Strong winds, torrential rain and snow that caused widespread blackouts in Northern California hit the southern part of the state late last week. After drenching Northern California, the storm dumped up to 5 inches of desperately needed rain in Southern California. There were street flooding, traffic tie-ups and wind gusts up to 60 mph in some areas. A small tornado hit South Los Angeles as well. In Camarillo, a Ventura County city about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles, rain was falling at about an inch an hour over hillsides ravaged by a 2013 wildfire. With few roots to hold the soil in place, the deluge caused part of a hillside to give way. Debris brushed aside concrete barriers crews had set up on the slope and surrounded about a dozen homes with silt, sticks and rocks, some as large as a couch. The force was so great that two large earthmovers used to set up barriers were swept down to the street, with one nearly buried.
Be sure to always have survival kits in your home and car.
