Fronts

Fronts

Fronts are where two air masses meet and create weather. The four types of fronts are Cold fronts, Warm fronts, Stationary fronts, Occluded fronts.

Cold Fronts

A cold front is where cold air catches up with warm air and pushes it upwards causing thunderstorms and cooling down the areas it passes.

Warm Fronts

Warm fronts are where a warm air mass catches up with a cold air mass and climbs over it causing only light rain or snow and warming up the area it passes by.
