Cold Warm Occluded Stationary-Types of Weather Fronts

Friday, May 3, 2019

Why do we have sunny weather one day and heavy rain the next?
Large air masses cause some of our weather.

There are four main fronts caused by these air masses.

A cold front is the result of an advancing cold air mass meeting a mass of warm air. The warm air is less dense that the cold air and will rise over the cold mass of air.

A warm front is caused by warm air rising over cold air. During a warm front the warm air will move up and over the cold front.

An occluded front which is a warm air mass stuck between two air masses.

A stationary front which is two air masses with almost the same density and pushes against each other.
