Weather Activity

Topics To Cover

  • High Pressure Air Mass 
    • Form over land
    • From the north bring cold, dry air
    • From the south, bring hot, dry air
  • Low Pressure Air Mass 
    • Form over water
    • Bring lots of moisture 
  • Fronts: Where two air masses meet
    • Cold fronts are when the cooler air mas pushes out the warmer air mass
    • The temperature could go from 95 and humid to 80 and dry, still a cold front
    • Warm front could go from 14 degrees to 34 degrees, still a warm front
    • Stationary Front: When two air masses meet but neither is strong enough to move the other mass or when they're both strong. Either way, no air moves.
