    6) cold fronts travel at speeds betweeen 25-30 MPH
    7) as soon as a cold front passes the tempurature will decrease and the wind speed may rise
    WARM FRONTS
    warm air is advancing and replacing cold air
    warm fronts move slower warm air moves up a gental frontal surface
    warm air may travel 1000 km before rising 2 or 3 km
    First cirrus and cirrostratus clouds form from and then there are altostratus clouds finally steady rain falls from nimbostratus clouds
    precipitation can occur for 225-275 miles ahead of where the front touches the ground
    warm fronts travel at speeds between 20-25 MPH
    warmer temperatures follow the passing warm front
    Occuled front
    a cold front is advancing and combining with a warm front
    occluding fronts move the slowest of all (20MPH)
    these fronts are associated with cirrus and stratus clouds in front of nimbostrattous and cumulonimbus clouds
    precipitation occurs for about 400 miles most of which is in front of the frontal boundary
    cool air is in front as warm air is forced up by the cold air which follows the passing occulding front

    An air mess is a huge section of the lower troposphere that has the same kind of weather (temperature and moisture properties) throughout.
    The best
    Boundiries between airmasses are called fronts
    Cold fronts
    1) Cold air is advancing and replacing warm air
    2) cold fronts are steeper and move faster than warm fronts
    3) the air rises upward rapidly forming cumulonimbus
    4) Heavy precipitation and thunderstorms which start and end quickly are associated with cold fronts
    5) precipitition covers 75-100 miles and occurs both befor and after a cold front passes at the surface
    6) cold fronts travel at speeds betweeen 25-30 MPH
    7) as soon as a cold front passes the tempurature will decrease and the wind speed may rise

    Air masses
    An airmass is a huge section of the lower troposphere that has the same kind of weather throughtout
    The best source regions for airmasses
    Air masse have two characteristics
    temp depends on weather it comes from the tropics or polar regions
    THE HUMIDITY OF THE air mass depends on wheather it comes from land or sea
    Air masses are named from their source region
    c-cononitinal (dry)
    m-maritime (moist)
    T-tropical
    P-polar
    A-arctic
