Predicting Weather

Weather simply refers to the condition of the air on earth at a given place and time - whether it is warm or cold, dry or wet, blowing or calm. The condition of air and how it acts to create weather is influenced primarily by two things - heat (the sun) and water. Weather on earth starts with the sun. Water evaporates into the air air rises As air rises, its temperature drops. Fronts and Air Masses Weather maps show the positions of air masses. When one air mass meets another, the air in different masses usually does not mix because the properties of the air are different.

Cold Front A cold front forms where a cold air mass moves into a warm air mass. Warm Front A warm front forms where a warm air mass moves into a cold air mass. Stationary Front Even though air masses often move, sometimes they don't, resulting in a stationary front. Wind Observation Map - North East United States. Weathercharts.
