SCI-03.ESS2.01 Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe and predict typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.

Clarification Statement: Examples of data could include average temperature, precipitation, and wind direction.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
Scientists record patterns of the weather across different times and areas so that they can make predictions about what kind of weather might happen next.
