What is a front?

the boundary between two air masses

200

What is the condition of Earth’s atmosphere at a certain time and place?

Weather

200

When  a high pressure system goes to a low pressure system. The greater the difference, creates a horizontal movement. What is this called?

Wind

200

What pressure system creates clear sunny skies

High Pressure system

200

What direction do the fronts move in?

In the direction the symbol is pointing.

200

a front where warm air moves over cold air and brings drizzly rain and then are followed by warm and clear weather

Warm front

400

What front: When a cold air mass pushes under a warm air mass, forcing the warm air mass to rise. This usually bring stormy weather and rain

cold front

400

What is the measure of how hot or cold something is?

Temperature

400
What kind of weather does a low pressure system bring?

cold, cloudy, rainy

400

What letters shows low pressure and high pressure systems?

L and H

400

What kind of front involves 3 different air masses?

Occluded Front

400

What is created by a difference in air pressure?

Wind

600

What symbol represents occluded front?

Purple triangles and circles on a line

600

Overall weather in an area over a long period of time

Climate

600

What is the force of the atmosphere on the surface of the earth?

Air pressure

600

What causes difference of air pressure around earth?

warm air rises, cold air sinks

600

Are air masses that form over land dry or moist?

Dry

600

Draw the Warm front symbol

Red line with half circles

800

What kind of weather does a warm front bring?

maybe a little drizzle of rain followed by clear skies and warm

800

The study of weather is called

meteorology

800

What happens when air is warmed or heated by the sun? (hint: in evaporation)

It rises

800

If a high pressure system is moving in, what kind of weather would you expect?

sunny, warm

800

What kind of weather is associated with a cold front?

Thunderstorms, rain, storms

800

Draw the cold front symbol

blue line with triangles
1000

What front: when a warm air mass and a cold air mass meet and no movement occurs

Stationary Front

1000

What are the 5 influences that make up the weather

Air pressure, Wind, Precipitation/ clouds, tenperature, humidity 

1000

A huge body of air that has similar temperature, humidity, and air pressure at any given height

Air mass

1000

The amount of water vapor in the air.

humidity

1000

TRUE or FASLE Weather fronts usually cause clouds and precipitation

TRUE

1000

Draw stationary front

Red circles and blue triangles on a line
