Is the temperature always hot at the mouth of an active volcano?

    Not necessarily:  a volcano may be active deeper inside than at the mouth.  Some volcanos go off without any warning, such as Mt. St. Helens, which is an active stratovolcano.  At times, there is a buildup at the mouth of a volcano of rock, so that when it finally “goes off”, it positively explodes from the inside out, instead of hot lava flowing out of the mouth.
