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. Its also a wonderful educational
website for teachers and parents to give them the right tools to explain the
different types of weather to children.

phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather
Pushed by howling, erratic
winds, a massive wildfire in north-central Washington state was growing rapidly
and burning in new directions. Road closures and evacuations were changing
regularly, as hot weather and winds with gusts up to 30 mph were pushing the
fire over ridge tops and toward a cluster of small towns northeast of Seattle.
The lightning-caused fire had scorched nearly 340 square miles in the scenic
Methow Valley. People living between Carlton and Pateros have been told to
leave their homes. The fire has blackened hillsides, destroyed homes and downed
power lines. Officials said there are no reports of serious injuries. Governor
Jay Inslee said about 50 fires were burning in Washington, which has been
wracked by hot, dry weather, gusting winds and lightning.
