Phy Science - Weather Review

Check this link to review cloud types. Remember fog is really a ground level cloud.

Middle-latitude cyclone/wave-these are the weather producers in the United States. Every storm system we looked at in Michigan has been associated with these weather producing systems. 

Processes that lift air- be sure to also look at your notes
  • orographic lifting- air rising/dropping over mountains
  • localized convective lifting- clouds forming on warm summer days
  • convergence- Florida peninsula
  • frontal wedging- warm air forced up over colder air
