Fall weather is a mixed bag. Good luck!


  1. 1) A dry line is a type of boundary that is predominately characterized by the difference in _________ on either side of the front.

    Dry lines often appear in central Texas where warm moist air front Gulf of Mexico meets warm dry air from the deserts to the west. This rapid change in moisture content across the boundary is the reason why it is also called a dew point line.

  2. 2) If you see a _________ cloud formation, it’s often a sign of mountain wave.

    You will usually find standing lenticular clouds near the tops of mountains, however, you can find them many miles downwind from the mountain peaks as well. Flying into or around these types of clouds can be very turbulent.

  3. 3) What phrase is used to describe expansion cooling or compression heating?

    Adiabatic cooling occurs when the pressure of a parcel of air is reduced. The opposite occurs when a parcel of air is compressed – it will heat up.

  4. 4) Microburst downdrafts can travel as quickly as ________ downward.

    According to the AIM, microburst downdrafts can be as strong as 6,000 feet per minute.

  5. 5) What primarily determines the speed of a weather front?

    What drives fronts is dependent on the speed and direction of the jet stream or upper-level winds. If winds blow directly across the front (perpendicular to it), then you can expect them to move fast. If they move more parallel to the front, then you can expect the front to move very slow.

That was a tough one…

You scored %. Better luck next time!
