Cold weather is very important in the Arctic
Ocean. If it wasn’t cold at the Arctic Ocean everything
would melt and there would be a huge flood because of it. It would flood the whole earth. Since it is cold at the Arctic Ocean its precipitation
is mostly snow, and it rarely ever rains.
Common Weather Systems
A common weather system in the Arctic is fog. Fog is created over the coastal
waters in the summer due to warm air from the land over the coastal ocean.
Another common weather system is snow. When the moisture
gets evaporated from the Arctic and the clouds are ready to precipitate, it is too cold to rain so it snows. Without snow there are many
bad things that could possibly happen, for example the animals that depend on snow as their home will more then likely become
extinct. Another example is that eventually with no precipitation of snow and since it is too cold for it to rain and the
weather is still evaporating moisture, there will be no more Arctic
An uncommon weather system is rain. It usually never rains
in the Arctic Ocean because it is too cold. If it dose rain it will probably turn to either freezing rain or ice pellets.
uncommon weather system in the Arctic Ocean is Arctic hurricanes. Arctic hurricanes form fast and unexpectedly in winter. Arctic
hurricanes are small cyclones that are created over sea during the winter. They are a few hundred kilometers in length and
diameter. There are about six Arctic hurricanes a year at the Arctic
Ocean and they usually only last three to four days.
