The weather in a newspaper can be a main headline or it can be the daily weather report. The weather section in a newspaper reports what the weather will be like for the day or the week. The weather predictions aren't always right. They are just predictions, a really good guess based on weather satellite pictures, and what the weather has been like over the past few days. Not only does the weather page tell you what they predict for the next few days, but it also tells you what the temperature will be, the air quality, the county forecast, national weather systems, national high and low temperatures, global temperatures, and California temperatures. The weather reports also tell you county temperatures, about the tides, a diving report, a surfing report, a Marine report, and where there are polluted waters.
To make your own weather section of a newspaper, you can predict what it will be like for the next couple of days. You could even draw pictures of your predictions to show what you think. You don't have to put all of these things in your newspaper, but these are some ideas of what is in the weather report in the newspaper.
Here is an example of a weather headling and a weather forecast. They were based on the book Night of the Twisters by Ivy Ruckman. The story Night of the Twisters is based on the bone chilling tornado disasters in 1980, when 12 tornadoes strike in Grand Island, Nebraska. A boy tries to save his best friend and little brother. This is a great book full of action and exciting drama, you wonít want to put it down!

12 Twisters Hit Grand Island, Nebraska Boy Saves 3 Lives,
Separated from his family, Reunited
By TQ22, Canyon View Press Ė On June 4th, 12 twisters hit Grand Island, Nebraska. Dan Hatcher, a 12 year old boy, tried to save his 2 year old brother Ryan, his friend Arthur, and himself as a twister overhead ripped apart his home. Nothing but the cement floor and basement were left. After the first twister had gone, Arthurís sister Stacy, came and helped the 3 boys out of the basement.
As soon as Dan Hatcher found his mother and had given his little brother Ryan to her, Stacy, Arthur, and himself went out to find their good friend Mrs. Smiley, an 81 year old woman. Dan Hatcher and his friends found Mrs. Smiley asleep in her basement. Fortunately she was not hurt. They took her to shelter for care and they went on to the armory.
As Dan Hatchter and his 2 friends were taken to the armory for the night, a 2nd twister hit the police car they were in. The driver was injured by flying glass. The driver quickly lost his vision, so 12 year old Dan Hatcher drove the police car to the armory. After Dan Hatcher and his friends, Stacy and Arthur, spent the night in the armory, they went in search of their parents. They found Arthurís father in his office. He had not seen Danís family, so Dan went to the local K-mart to find his mother. A police officer told him everyone was evacuated to the churches, high schools, and other places that were not damaged by the twisters.
On his way to the park Dan found himself reunited with his father, along with his mother and little brother Ryan.
Todayís forecast calls for clear skies with a high of 72 and a low of 61. Tomorrow, a calm, sunny day is in store for the Grand Island area with temperatures in the high 70ís, a nice change after all those twisters. Thursday and Friday will be cooler with light breezes and temperatures in the middle 60ís.
