LAND BREEZE
  • OCCURS AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DEVELOPS OVER WATER AT NIGHT DUE TO SPECIFIC HEAT DIFFERENCES. GOES FROM THE LAND OUT TO THE WATER
sea breeze
SEA BREEZE
  • OCCURS AS LOW PRESSURE AREA DEVELOPS OVER LAND DURING HEAT OF DAY. AIR FLOWS FROM OCEAN TO LAND BRINGING IN COOLING WINDS.
katabatic wind
KATABATIC WIND
  • COLD DRY MOUNTAIN WIND
  • ALSO KNOWN AS MISTRAL & BORA
  • CAN CAUSE EXTREMELY COLD TEMPERATURES IN A RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
chinook winds
CHINOOK WINDS
  • WARM AND DRY MOUNTAIN WIND BRINGING RAPID TEMPERATURE INCREASES
  • ALSO KNOWN AS ZONDA, FOEHN, & SANTA ANA
monsoon
MONSOON
  • SEASONAL REVERSAL OF WIND
  • DRY MONSOON OCCURS IN WINTER WITH LOW PRESSURE OVER WATER
  • WET MONSOON OCCURS IN SUMMER WITH LOW PRESSURE OVER LAND
air mass
AIR MASS
  • A LARGE BODY OF AIR THAT IS CHARACTERIZED BY THE SAMENESS OF TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY
source region
SOURCE REGION
  • THE AREA WHERE AN AIR MASS ACQUIRES ITS PROPERTIES OF TEMPERATURE AND MOISTURE
  • CONTINENTAL – LAND [DRY]
  • MARITIME OR MARINE – WATER [MOIST]
fronts
FRONTS
  • BOUNDARIES THAT SEPARATE AIR MASSES OF DIFFERENT DENSITIES
  • WARM – OVER RUNNING
  • COLD
  • OCCLUDED - PINCHING
  • STATIONARY
mid latitude cyclones
MID-LATITUDE CYCLONES
  • PRIMARY WEATHER PRODUCERS IN MID- LATITUDES [30 –60 DEGREES]
  • LARGE CENTERS OF LOW PRESSURE THAT GENERALLY TRAVEL FROM WEST TO EAST LASTING FROM A FEW DAYS TO MORE THAN A WEEK
  • COUNTERCLOCKWISE MOTION
