FRONT Where air masses meet and do not mix.
4 Types of weather fronts: Cold Front Occluded Front Stationary Front Warm Front
Cold Front When a fast moving cold air mass runs into a slow moving warm air mass and the thicker cold air slides under the lighter warmer air.
A cold front symbolThe direction that the teeth point indicate the direction the front is moving.
Warm Front When a moving warm air mass collides with a slowly moving cold air mass and the warm air moves over the cold air.
Warm Front symbolThe directions that the bumps face is the direction the front is moving.
Stationary Front When a cold air mass and warm air mass meet, but neither air mass has enough force to move the other air mass.
Stationary Front Symbol
Occluded Front When a warm air mass is caught between two cooler air masses and the thicker cold air masses move underneath the thinner warm air mass and push it upward.
Occluded front symbol – The directions that the bumps face is the direction the front is moving.
Which types of fronts can you find on this map?

Air Masses and Fronts. An air mass is a huge body of air that has similar 1. temperature 2. humidity (amount of water vapor in the air) 3. air pressure.
Dr. Hooda. What is an air mass? A large body of air having nearly uniform conditions of temperature and humidity at any given altitude.
What is an air mass? A large body of air having nearly uniform conditions of temperature and humidity at any given altitude.
8 th Grade. Definition Weather front – The area where two air masses meet and do not mix.
Four Types of Fronts Cold Fronts A cold front forms when cold air moves underneath warm air, forcing the warm air to rise.
Air Masses, Fronts and Weather Systems. Movements of Air Masses and Fronts are vital to our understanding and prediction of Weather Systems Weather.
Air Masses and Weather Fronts. Why do we need to know anything about weather fronts? When we look at weather fronts we can see what type of weather we.
FRONTS WHERE TWO AIR MASSES MEET, BUT DO NOT MIX.
CQ# 41: What happens when two air masses meet? Answer Front- The area where two air masses meet and do not mix. From military language meaning a battle.
Weather The state of the atmosphere at a certain time and place Climate The average weather over a long period of time.
AIR MASSES. A huge body of air that has similar temperature, humidity, and air pressure throughout.

Air Masses and Fronts Meteorology. Air Masses Classified by temperature and humidity –Tropical: Warm, form in tropics, low pressure –Polar: cold, form.
Air Masses and Fronts. Types of air masses An air mass is a huge body of air that has similar temperature, humidity and air pressure throughout it. There.
4 Major types of fronts Stationary –A front that is not moving. Cold –Leading edge of colder air that is replacing warmer air. Warm –Leading edge of.
Huge bodies of air that forms over water or land in tropical or polar regions.
FRONTS The movement of air masses is determined by the prevailing winds and upper.
Lesson 27 What happens to air masses meet?. Warm and cold air masses do not mix. When warm and cold air masses meet, they collide.
* Weather maps are used to show current weather conditions in an effort to predict future weather conditions. * You need to know what each symbol means.
Unit 4-5: Fronts. What is a “front”? A front is the boundary between two air masses. The “surface” of a front always slopes. The slope is due to the.

Chapter 3 Section 1 Air Masses and Fronts. Four Major Types of Air Masses in North America Maritime Tropical Maritime Polar Continental Tropical.
Fronts. Fronts (copy in glossary) A boundary created when two air masses meet. Fronts are named for the air mass that is moving.
Objective: Determine the humidity and temperature of air masses.
Air Pressure and Fronts. Air Pressure Air has weight, and is in constant motion and is pulled towards Earth’s center by gravity. Air pressure is greatest.
Weather Fronts. The boundary between 2 air masses that have different temperatures, humidity's, pressures.
Map Symbol Flashcards Low Pressure = cloudy weather and precipitation Centers of all storms have areas of low pressure.
Weather fronts and systems.
TEKS 8.10B: Identify how global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather using weather maps that show high and low pressures and fronts.
Air Masses and Weather Fronts Study Guide Notes. The study of weather is meteorology Someone who studies weather is called a meteorologist.
Air Pressure I can compare and contrast high and low pressure systems. I can describe that high pressure systems result in fair weather due to air sinking,

Air Masses and Fronts Weather Patterns. What is an Air Mass? An AIR MASS is a large body of air that takes on the TEMPERATURE and HUMIDITY (moisture)
Weather – the condition of the atmosphere at a certain time and place. Created mainly by uneven heating of earth’s surface.
Weather Maps Scientists and weather forecasters use weather maps to help them see weather patterns.
Air Masses How do you think these air masses effect our weather?
Fronts and Clouds I can predict the cloud type that will results from various types of fronts.
Air Pressure. High and Low Pressure Areas High pressure causes air to sink Usually results in several days of clear sunny skies Air rises in low pressure.
WEATHER Fronts and Mapping. TERMS Weather is all the conditions of the atmosphere, such as temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind and cloud cover.
AIR MASSES AND FRONTS 1. Air masses take on the characteristics of the area where they form. Air mass temperature and moisture are consistent throughout.
