  • How do Warm and Cold Fronts Work? A Cold Front occurs when colder air advances toward warm air. The cold air goes under the warm. As the warm air is lifted, The cool water vapor condenses and this forms clouds. When cold fronts and warm fronts combine, thunderstorms h even tornados may happen.

When Warm Front and the Cold Front collide, it can cause rain and thunderstorms. I got this in questions.com
  • How Warm Fronts Affect The Weather During a warm front, the temperature starts to get warm very quickly, after staying warm for a while the warm front levels out. When the front passes, it will lightly drizzle but not much else, once it has passed, it either continues or stops. The clouds that come with warm fronts are usually stratus, and after the warm front passes or it scatters then the warm front clears. While the front is in an area it is not windy, but when its gone, the wind blows north to northwest and south to southwest. pictures from Wikipedia
  • How Cold Fronts Affect The Weather When a cold front passes the temperature will drop. After a cold front passes the temperature levels out. The wind has the same pattern of a warm front, it usually blows west to east. A cold front can cause rain or storms and after it passes precipitation clears. pictures from Wikipedia
  • Why Fronts Move West to East in the United States The reason that fronts in the USA move from west to east is because the fronts are being pushed by the jet stream, a upper level air current that blows across the country and carries the fronts and other weather west to east.
