Monday's Weather 101 is a lesson on the cold front. We use this word all the time on the news but have you ever seen what the atmosphere actually looks like along one of these boundaries?

After watching the video you should be able to answer:

  • What types of air masses does a cold front divide?
  • What does the direction of the blue triangle on the line show us?
  • Is the motion above the front sharp or gradual?
  • What type of weather can be expected?

Tomorrow's lesson is about warm fronts!
