Fronts

A front is the the boundary where two different air masses meet. There are four types of fronts A warm front, cold front, stationary front, and occluded front

Cold front

A cold front is formed when a cold air mass and a warm air mass meet and the cold air mass goes under the warm air and pushes it up. It produces cumulus or cumulonimbus clouds and there is thunderstorms or snow or hail. After it passes the air will be cold and dry. And it will become very cold

Warm front

A warm front is formed when a warm air mass and a cold air mass meet and the warm air pushes the cold air down as it goes on top. Starts rain and sometimes fog. It make cirrus and cirrostratus clouds. After the warm front passes the skies should be clear and it should be warm.

Stationary front

A stationary front is formed when a cold air mass and a warm air mass meet but non of them have the power to move each other. It will bring gentle rain or light snow for a few days

Occluded front

A occluded front is formed when two cold air masses hit a warm air mass and splits the warm air mass in two directions. It brings thunderstorms and bad weather like that
