How hurricanes form

Air from surrounding areas with higher air pressure pushes in to the low pressure area. Then that "new" air becomes warm and moist and rises, too. As the warm air continues to rise, the surrounding air swirls in to take its place. As the warmed, moist air rises and cools off, the water in the air forms clouds. The whole system of clouds and wind spins in a counter clockwise directionand grows, fed by the ocean's heat and water evaporating from the surface.

The temp

The fact tha the tempature of the days when the hurricane hit was in Celsius so I converted it into Fahrenheit The temp during and after the hurricane

5th of September 85.1 Degrees

10 of September 84.2

15 84.56

20 84.92

25 78

30 82.22

5 83.3

10 83.3

15 83.2

20 84

25 81.4

30 78.98

What I noticed was that the temperature was normal (about 85 degrees Fahrenheit) and during the hurricane the temp was 91.4 on the pathway of hurricane Rita and beside where the the hurricane passed it was cooler like 82 degrees

It took about 5 days to return to the normal tempature
