How far do Frontal Systems move in a day?
Frontal systems move at various rates across our country. If we can determine exactly how far they can move in an average day, then the accuracy of our forecasts can be improved.
Your task is to determine how far a warm front and a cold front
can move in one 24 hour period. You must consult a number of maps in order to be sure that your estimates are accurate. When you have completed gathering the information, print at least 3 maps which illustrate how far each type of frontal system can move in a 24 hour period.
Prepare your research for presentation by preparing a page for our Weather Watcher's Handbook.
