A visible satellite image on Wednesday, May 12 at 13:10 UTC (9:10 a.m. EDT) from NASA's Aqua satellite's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument captured the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano's ash plume (brown). Compared to the MODIS image from May 11, the May 12 image shows that lower level winds have shifted from blowing to a southerly direction to a more east-southeasterly direction, as an occluded front is positioned just to the east of the volcano.

Weather Pack For September 6, 2012

Today on Weather Pack we are going to examine the surface wind around a mature low pressure system, which means that the low pressure has an occluded front associated with it. Yellow Star: The forecasted surface winds would be out of the Northwest as the flow behind the low is counter-clockwise. Green Star: Anyone that is forecasting for the green star would be looking at the winds coming from the South-Southeast just right ahead of the warm front of the low pressure system. Red...

Looking at our weather map above we can see a cold front moving through the states of Oklahoma and Kansas. The major thing about a cold front is the weather it can bring with it. The eastern side of the cold front provides two chances to receive precipitation. The first one is known as a squall line which usually forms some 50-150 miles ahead of the cold front. The squall line can be responsible for bringing severe weather in the form of super-cell thunderstorms. The second part...

If you look at our weather map above you see a warm front extending from Iowa into the Great Lakes region. What a warm front does is separate warm air from cool air. On the north side of the front the temps will be about 15-20 degrees cooler than on the south side of the front. The warm front is depicted on a weather map as having red half circles. The reason for using half circles it to show that advancing of the warm air from the south. Winds ahead of the warm front are from the...
