5: D is for Dew Point. | Dew Point is the temperature at which saturation occurs and condensation begins. | Fun Fact: When the dew point reaches 75 degrees F, It is called "Soupy Air".

23: In the United States, the most powerful tornadoes occur. | Hurricanes are the most powerful storms on Earth. | All thunderstorms produce lightening.

24: T is for Temperature. | Temperature is measure if the average kinetic energy of the atoms or molecules in a substance. | The Average body temperature is 98.6 degrees F.

25: U is for Ultra- Violet Light. | Uv waves can cause skin cancer. | Ultra-violet light has shorter wavelength than visible light. | The Earth's Ozone absorbs ultraviolet rays.

26: W is for Winds. | Wind is the movement of air from one place to another. | Port Martin, Antarctica is the windiest place on Earth.
