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.
The masses “battle” each other. This meeting causes many weather changes. The boundary between two air masses is called a front.
A warm front forms when a moving warm air mass pushes against a cold air mass. warmcold
The warm air of the front pushes upward. cold warm
It flows over the top of the cooler air mass.
Many clouds form along a warm front. They may reach out for 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) or more.
At first there are only thin cirrus clouds high in the sky. Then stratus clouds more in.
Slowly, the clouds become lower and lower. The sky becomes darker and darker
Finally, it rains.
Precipitation along a warm front is even and steady. It keeps falling until the front passes.
It may last a few days. Then the weather becomes clearer and warmer. A warm air mass has arrived.
If you watch TV, you have probably seen weather maps.
The symbol for a warm front is The warm front is moving in the direction of the semi- circles. In what direction would the above warm front be moving?
In what direction is the warm front moving?
FRONT Where air masses meet and do not mix. 4 Types of weather fronts: Cold Front Occluded Front Stationary Front Warm Front.
SCIENCE 10: WEATHER Air masses, high and low pressure sysems, warm and cold fronts.
Fronts March Bell Work 1. Using a psychrometer, figure the relative humidity in the classroom. 2. Yesterday, there were high, curl or “wispy” clouds.
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)

TheH stands for a High Pressure System This usually means CLEAR WEATHER. TheL stands for a Low Pressure System This usually means STORMY weather.
Why You Be Frontin’? Weather Fronts : The Untold Story.
WEATHER Fronts and Mapping. TERMS Weather is all the conditions of the atmosphere, such as temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind and cloud cover.
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!
