  • Fronts are boundaries between air masses of different temperatures. Fronts are actually zones of transition, but sometimes the transition zone, called a frontal zone, can be quite sharp.
  • The type of front depends on both the direction in which the air mass is moving and the characteristics of the air mass. There are four types of fronts: cold front, warm front, stationary front, and occluded front.
  • (Stationary)
    (Warm &Cold)
  • To locate a front on a surface map, look for the following:
    • sharp temperature changes over relatively short distances,
    • changes in the moisture content of the air (dew point),
    • shifts in wind direction,
    • low pressure troughs and pressure changes, and
    • clouds and precipitation patterns.
    (Not all of these patterns may be obvious or even occur, but these are some signs.)
