Let's look at some of the features of a mid-latitude cyclone
- fronts are the boundries between cold and warm air masses.
- cold fronts are represented by triangles/ warm fronts semicircles.
- review stages in the development of a mid-lititude cyclone
- warm air is always forced upwards by cold air, along the cold front
- this upward movement of air along a cold front causes heavy short lived precipitation
- these cyclones create a great number of thunderstorms.
