The leading edge of an advancing warmer air mass, the passage of which generally brings cloud and precipitation followed by growing temperature and/or humidity. The leading edge of an advancing colder air mass. Its passage is usually marked by cloud and precipitation, adopted by a drop in temperature and/or humidity. This image exhibits the completely different scales on which snow can happen. The massive snow band extending across the determine is related to a large storm system shifting throughout the country.

Tornadoes are sometimes situated on the heart of a hook-shaped echo on the southwest side of thunderstorms. The hook is best observed in the reflectivity field. This image shows a reflectivity field containing several hook echoes associated with thunderstorms that occurred in Tennessee and Kentucky on May 18, 1995. Normally, it’s tough to differentiate precipitation sort on the basis of the radar reflectivity alone.

This picture reveals the reflectivity area from the attention wall of Hurricane Andrew. The symmetry proven on this image signifies that Andrew was a very well developed hurricane. The ring of orange are the high reflectivities associated with the convection discovered within the eye wall.

The tighter the packing, the stronger the winds are. The 500 mb heights are also known as the sterring winds of the ambiance. Following a specific shade will show the place the winds and thus pressure methods (cyclones and anticyclones) will move.

If the move is from north to south, the climate will be genreally collder than regular. If the move is from south to north, the weather might be hotter than normal. Contours of equal imply sea-stage pressure (MSLP), measured in hectopascals (hPa). MSLP maxima (anticyclones) and minima (depressions) are marked by the letters H (High) and L (Low) on climate charts.
