What is convection?

What is the transfer of thermal energy by the movement of particles within matter (through liquids or gases)

200

The average weather conditions of a region

What is Climate 

200

A cold front forms when cold, dense air moves under warm, less dense air. Cooler weather usually follows a cold front. Cold fronts often bring other weather changes.
