Weather Symbols - Teacher Bulletin

In order to read a weather map, you first need to know what the different symbols on it mean! When you see an H it stands for High Pressure. High pressure brings blue skies

and fair weather. When you see an L it stands for Low Pressure. Low pressure brings stormy weather and strong winds.

When air masses meet, we have what is called a front. Fronts bring stormy weather. Cold fronts bring cold air which replaces the warmth. Blue triangled lines show cold

fronts. Warm fronts have warm air replacing the cold chill. Red bumpy lines indicate a warm front.

Air masses are made up of both warm and cold fronts. Pictures are used to describe the weather. These are called weather symbols.

Drizzl e FRONTS ON WEATHER MAPS Warm fronts are shown by the following symbol.

Cold fronts are shown by the following symbol. There is a third type of front that we will study later the OCCLUDED front. They are shown by the following symbol. Scientists are able to predict what the weather will be. They are called

meteorologists. They study high and low air pressure and weather fonts to predict what the upcoming weather will be. Today

meteorologists use many tools to measure and predict the weather including Doppler radar, rain gauges, satellites,

anemometers, computer models, thermometers and barometers. Even with all the technology, weather predictions isnt a 100% accurate

science. Only God know what the future has in store for us and for the weather.
