1 Draw a picture that represents yesterdays weather…. (You have 30 seconds!).

2 Did it look like this?

3

4 What is a synoptic chart?

5

6 To access synoptic chart GO TO: The Australian Bureau of Meteorology Homepage Navigate to here

7 Use the synoptic chart to identify the weather in Strahan Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Rain (yes/no) Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Direction Strahan Find the: Temperature Rain Wind Speed Wind Direction

8 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE What can we look at?

9 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE The date Season? By area North South Low pressure system Associated with cooler weather High pressure system Associated with warmer temperatures

10 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE The Seasons: Summer: December to February Autumn: March to May Winter: June to August Spring: September to November

11 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE What is the temperature likely to be for HOBART??

12 What is the date? Where is Hobart? Is it in a Low pressure or High pressure system? Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Hobart COLD Winter Southern Location N

13 What can we look at? Use the synoptic chart to identify presence of RAIN

14 Is HOBART likely to get rain? Is there a cold front? Presence of a trough? Low pressure system? High pressure system over the coast? Rain (yes/no) Hobart MAYBE Cold front passed Shaded

15 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND SPEED What can we look at?

16 Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Hobart STRONG Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND SPEED What is the likely wind speed in HOBART?? Closeness of isobars? Presence of cold front? Presence Low pressure system? Close isobars Cold front

17 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What can we look at?

18 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What is the likely wind direction for HOBART?? Isobars? Low pressure? High pressure?

19 LOW pressure system = CYCLONE = CLOCKWISE HIGH pressure system = ANTI–CYCLONE = ANTI-CLOCKWISE

21 Wind Direction Hobart SOUTH / South west Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What is the likely wind direction for HOBART?? Isobars? Low pressure? High pressure? N

22 Our Forecast Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Rain (yes/no) Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Wind Direction HobartColdMaybeStrongSOUTH / South west

23 The Official Forecast Hobart Forecast Forecast for Friday : Cloudy periods with showers easing during the day, falling as snow about the mountain. Moderate to fresh and gusty southwest winds, easing later. Precis Showers easing, mountain snow. Max 11

24 Use the synoptic chart to identify Strahans weather Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Rain (yes/no) Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Direction Strahan Find = Temperature Rain Wind Speed Wind Direction To access synoptic chart GO TO: The Australian Bureau of Meteorology Homepage
