CT.6.3. Energy in the Earth's Systems: Variations in the amount of the sun's energy hitting the Earth's surface affect daily and seasonal weather patterns. a) Local and regional weather are affected by the amount of solar energy the area receives and proximity to a large body of water.
6.3.10. Design a weather forecast based on collected weather data.
6.3.2. Demonstrate how changes in temperature, pressure, moisture and density of air affect weather patterns (e.g., air masses and air pressure.)
6.3.3. Describe in writing how solar energy drives Earth's weather systems.
6.3.7. Research and give examples of heat transfer and local weather differences in Connecticut.
