2 Weather Maps

3 Scientists and weather forecasters use weather maps to help them see weather patterns.

4 They place symbols on the maps to help them see what is going on with the weather in various parts of the country.

5 A Cold Front symbol shows the edge of a mass of cool air.

6 A Warm Front symbol shows the edge of a warmer air mass.

7 A Stationary Front means neither the warm air or the cool air are moving very much.

8 How many fronts can you identify on this map?

9 A large H means an area of higher pressure. Higher pressure usually means nice, clear weather.
