1. 2. the leading edge on a warm, moist air mass that over takes a cool, dense, and dryer air mass.
  2. 4. the factors that affect the weather; atmospheric pressure, air temperature, humidity wind etc
  3. 7. a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is above average.
  4. 10. the apparent deflection of moving air, as see by an observer on earth as a result of earth’s rotation
  5. 11. a collection of air masses, neither of which is stronger enough to replace the other
  6. 13. a condition of the atmosphere in which the pressure is below average.
  7. 15. one of a number of winds that are influenced predominantly by the topographic features of a relatively small reach
  8. 16. the leading edge on a cold, dry air mass that over takes a warmer, humid air mass.
  9. 17. wind that blow steadily from specific directions over long distances
  10. 19. a body of air extending over a large area (1000 miles or more) that develops and retains specific characteristics of pressure, temperature, and humidity
  11. 20. a cool breeze blowing from the sea toward the land
  1. 1. a high speed, meandering wind current, generally moving from a westerly direction at speeds often exceeding 400 kilometers per hour at altitudes of 10 to 15 kilometers
  2. 3. the transfer of heat by the mass movement of heated particles into an area of cooler fluid
  3. 5. The day state of the atmosphere.
  4. 6. the weather in some location averaged over some long period of time.
  5. 8. rapidly flowing ocean currents that originate in the Caribbean Sea it carries warm water from the Caribbean Sea northeast along the coast of United States before veering toward Europe and colder waters.
  6. 9. the front formed when a cold front occludes a warm front
  7. 12. a directional movement of ocean water; surface currants result from steady winds over the ocean surface; deep currents result from density variations due to temperature and salinity differences.
  8. 14. air moving from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure
  9. 18. that blows from the land toward open water
