boiling point of water is 212 degrees
Precipitation Water that falls from clouds to
Earths surface.Sentence We are expecting a
large amount of precipitation today, so take your
Evaporation the process by which a liquid
changes into a gas.Sentence The sun causes

Accumulation growth by continuous
additionsSentence The accumulation of snow

Freezing Point The temperature water freezes (32
degrees Fahrenheit or 0 Celsius)Sentence When
the water in the ice trays reached the freezing
point, it became ice cubes.
Sleet precipitation in the form of ice pellets
created by the freezing of rain as it
fallsSentence When it began to sleet, the roads

Weather The condition of the atmosphere at a
certain place and time.Sentence The weather in
