Weather vs. Climate

  • weather is what condition of the atmosphere
  • climate is how the atmosphere behaves
The weather front is where two weather masses with different temperatures combine together but do not mix.

H stands for high pressure and a cold dry front

L stands for low pressure and a moist front

land vs sea breeze

The water takes a longer time to heat up than the soil. Therefore, if someone lives near the beach they will feel the breeze at night cooler than it is in the day.
