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 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 Fronts and Mapping. TERMS Weather is all the conditions of the atmosphere, such as temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind and cloud cover.
C a r o l i n e, E l, a n d S a r a h. Warm Fronts A warm front is the boundary between warm air and cool air as warm air replaces cool air. A warm front.
Fronts March Bell Work 1. Using a psychrometer, figure the relative humidity in the classroom. 2. Yesterday, there were high, curl or “wispy” clouds.
Weather Maps Scientists and weather forecasters use weather maps to help them see weather patterns.
TheH stands for a High Pressure System This usually means CLEAR WEATHER. TheL stands for a Low Pressure System This usually means STORMY weather.

Wind and Weather. S6E4b: Relate unequal heating of land and water surfaces to form large global wind systems and weather events such as tornados and thunderstorms.
SCIENCE 10: WEATHER Air masses, high and low pressure sysems, warm and cold 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.

A front marks the boundary between two air masses of different density. It is really important to remember that air masses never mix- its just physics!
