Types of weather fronts

There are four main types of fronts. Weather fronts occur when large masses of air which has different temperatures interact.
Cold air is denser than warm air and therefore wants to settle below this warmer air.
The warm air moves upwards and cools which may result in rain, sleet, snow, or hail.

Four types of fronts

Cold front: When cold air overtakes warm air

Warm front: When warm air overtakes cold air

Occluded front Warm air gets trapped between cold two cold fronts

Stationary front: Two air masses of similar density meet each other and become stationary
