Polar Front Jet on the Water Vapor Image
2012-07-10 17:35:31

Water vapor satellite is used to identify moisture in the atmosphere. We can also use it to help us identify the Polar front Jetstream. The Jetstream is outlined in the above image with a red line. As you can see it travels through an area of black or what we refer to as dry air. The reason the polar front jet travels through dry air is that the winds associated with this jet can exceed 150mph which keeps the air moving too fast to develop moisture at high levels. The polar front jet...

Tropical systems are weather features that form in the tropics and can become very intense areas of low pressure that impact many coastal regions throughout the world. They usually form between 5 and 15 latitude. This is because a tropical system is a vertical extension in the atmosphere of a large thunderstorm development. In order for these thunderstorms to move they need something in the upper levels to help them move. That is where the spinning of the earth comes into play for them which...
