Analysis: Clouds/Fronts

What do the clouds tell us about the arrival or departure of Fronts?

Do the clouds change in response to the arrival or departure of fronts?  Can the amount of cloud cover in the sky tell us if a front is on the way?  

Study your resources to see if there's a connection between the clouds in the sky and the arrival or departure of fronts.

Collect several days worth of maps which show cloud cover, and maps for the same day that show the locations of fronts. Do fronts seem to bring clouds, or keep clouds away?  Do different types of fronts have different effects on the clouds in an area?  Do clouds arrive before a front arrives, or after?  Use the maps you collect to support your hypotheses.
