Air and Weight

Posted Feb 7th - 4:27pm

Hi, I am a second-grader who is working on a science fair project, "Can you weigh air?" My teacher would like us to ask an expert, and I was hoping that you could give me your opinion.

If you have an answer to this question, and how you know, I would appreciate your help.


Dry States

Posted Feb 7th - 1:21pm

Who has the most average precipitation per year Utah or Arizona? And how much does each state have?



Weather Experiments

Posted Feb 6th - 4:54pm

My daughter has a science project at school coming up. She has always been interested with tornadoes. I am originally from Georgia so I know about them, but I am not real sure how to help make a tornado, do you have any advice? I know during weather school when I didn't work I tried to watch, but it has been a while.

Thanks, Sandra K


Latest Seasonal Snow

Posted Feb 4th - 1:11pm

I have a sports car that I care for gingerly and keep stored in a garage all winter. I want to know what's the latest date that we have had snowfall here in Utah so I can better judge when I can pull my baby out of storage!

Cool Clouds

Posted Feb 3rd - 6:08pm

My family and I watched these very unusual cloud formations and then decided to take a picture of them and send them to you to ask you what they were or why they looked that way. We live in Clinton and we took these pictures around 5:30pm looking West toward the Great Salt Lake. Please let us know what they are

Thank you.

Winter and Cold

Posted Feb 3rd - 4:46pm

The earth is pointed away from the sun more in December than any other month of the year including January. Therefore, why isn't December colder than January?

Average Temeperatures

Posted Feb 2nd - 4:16pm

I understand that U.S. temperature reporting has been consistent for about 160 years. Where can I get the highest and lowest temperature for each year for major cities? I have looked on many government web sites without success.

You can find some climate data online but this kind of particular request will probably cost you some dough.

Ring Around the Moon

Posted Feb 1st - 5:06pm

What is the large ring around the room tonight? I think it looks cool my daughter thinks it looks creepy.


Creepy? That's the first time I've heard that on a moon halo. The ring around the moon is just a halo. It's caused by tiny ice crystals shaped like hexagons bending the light. You can get one around the sun sometimes too.

Freezing Rain

Posted Jan 28th - 4:18pm

Why doesn't Utah get freezing rain, but snow instead? Does it have something to do with the humidity?



Sunrise and Sunset

Posted Jan 27th - 5:35pm

How/where/who sets the time for sunrise and sunset?
