pd 4 group 5

  1. 1. Section 2 Weather Patterns Cold Fronts <ul><li>Cold fronts mostly move northwest to southeast. </li></ul><ul><li>The air behind a cold front is noticeably colder and drier than the air ahead of it. </li></ul><ul><li>An abrupt temperature change over a short distance is indicating that a front is somewhere in between it. </li></ul><ul><li>If cold air replacing warmer air, then the front should be analyzed as a cold front. </li></ul><ul><li>Cold fronts occur when heavy cold air displaces lighter warm air, pushing it toward. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Stationary Fronts <ul><li>Occurs when a boundary between air masses stop advancing </li></ul>
  3. 3. Warm Fronts <ul><li>A Warm front is a warm air mass that replaces a cold air mass. </li></ul><ul><li>Warm fronts move from southwest to northeast. </li></ul><ul><li>A warm front is warmer and more moist than the air ahead of it. </li></ul><ul><li>A warm front passes through, the air becomes warmer and more humid than it was before. </li></ul><ul><li>If warmer air is replacing colder air, the front should be analyzed as a warm front. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Occluded Front <ul><li>Involves three air masses of different temperatures, colder air, cool air, and warm air </li></ul>
