There are many types of air present in our atmosphere. The first type is known as dry air. Dry air is described as having less than 1% of moisture in it. The best location to find this type of air is in the Southwest part of the United States and also in the Middle East. The second type of air is called moist air. This air is best defined as having moisture present in it. Anything greater than 1% would be described as being moist. The best places to find this type of air is along the...

Topographic Features Impact On The Weather
2012-07-10 20:45:32

The first topographic feature that I would like to talk about today is the Rocky Mountains. The Rocky mountains with their rugged terrain and high elevation can really become a large impact on weather patterns in the United States. First, the Rockies provide the Central Plains with the cold air aloft that is needed in the formation of severe weather to include tornadoes. Secondly, the Rocky mountains act as a barrier for any large weather system that moves onshore along the Pacific...

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...

Another type of air mass that we are going to talk about is called Continental Tropical also known as CT. This type of air mass can be best described as having dry and hot conditions. The reason for this is because it forms over the land and also is found in the hot tropical regions. The best place in the United States to find this type of air mass is the Southwest portion of the United States. This type of air is associated with very dry conditions that can prevail for long periods of time....

As a meteorologist you are taught quickly the term Air Mass. This term means an area of relatively flat and uniform terrain with the same temp and moisture content. There are places in the world that are conducive for being air mass zones such as Siberia and also the flat plains of Canada. However, the key is to remember that air masses move. The area in Canada is known as the Canadian High pressure center. This high pressure moves southeastward towards the United States all the time. This...
