  • tragic.  Is this complexity too incomprehensible to you?
  • Well, I'm not surprised...
  • You see, depending on which front is dominant, depressions can yield the results of many different clouds. If the cold air is leading and more dominant in the front, cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds will form due to the warm air condensing much slower, stacking on top of each other as it rises. If the cold air is leading, the depression will form nimbostratus and altostratus clouds, because there is more warm air, meaning the moisture can condense faster. If the depression has an occluded front, cirrus clouds will develop because the warm air will be thrust high up, and slowly condense, making the clouds sparse.
  • What does this have to do with weather? you ask. Well it has everything to do with weather! Specifically dictated by clouds, that is.
  • Cumulus and Cumulonimbus
  • Cold Front
  • Warm Front
  • Nimbostratus
  • Altostratus
  • Elements Temperature Pressure Winds (northern hemisphere) Precipitation Clouds Visibility
  • In the event of a frontal depressions, many different factors of weather may change. It is crucial to know these things for practical use and preparedness.
  • Temperature: Is steady before the front passage, cools abruptly during the passage, and continues to cool after Pressure: Decreases before the front passage, reaches its lowest point during the passage, increases after Precipitation: Showers before the front passage, can have severe thunderstorms during the passage, and more showers and drizzles until a clearing Clouds: Altocumulus or altostratus before, cumulonimbus or cumulus during, cumulus after Visibility: Translucent to hazy before, poor, but improving during, clear sight unless during showers or drizzles Dew Point: Heavy before, abrupt drop during, falling in dew and moisture
  • Okay, well, maybe we don't need that much information. Depressions aren't usually dangerous, after all. But, then again, you never know how much information you'll have to know to deal with depressions, after all, they are quite erratic.

  • Well, maybe next time you'll actually listen to what I say and be prepared for the frontal depression.
