The tighter the packing, the stronger the winds are. The 500 mb heights are also known as the sterring winds of the atmosphere. Following a selected colour will present the place the winds and thus stress techniques (cyclones and anticyclones) will move.
The temperature area shows the location of heat and cold air close to the floor of the earth and can be utilized to locate floor fronts or estimate high and low temperatures. It ought to be famous, these are rough temperatures are will not replicate actual floor tempreatures that would be reported at station locations. The quantitative precipitation area exhibits estimated 12 hour precipitation (liquid equal) for the 12 hour interval previous to the legitimate time.
The stress contours or isobars are drawn each 4 millibars. Cold fronts generally follow the strain trough flowing south and west from the low pressure system. Warm fronts may be positioned at instances as pressure troughs going east out of a low but are usually hard to search out. Surface winds are associated to the packing of the stress contours (isobars).
