Hurricanes

Hurricanes form when warm air in a low pressure system quickly rises and condenses releasing energy.Pic from: http://geology.com/hurricanes/hurricane-names.shtml

Typhoons

Typhoons are very similar to hurricanes in how they form the only difference is in their location.Pic from:http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/view.php?id=56644

Cyclones

Cyclones are larger and much less destructive than hurricanes and are the result of a warm front with thunderstorms meeting a horizontal traveling cold front

Tornados

Tornados form when warm moist air meets cold dry air with incerasing wind speed and height.Pic from: http://www.weatherwizkids.com/weather-tornado.htm

Warm Fronts

Warm fronts form when warm air meets cold air and forms a long gradual slope which clouds form on.Pic from: http://www.auburnschools.org/drake/aklecompte/Lesson%205%20RG%20Answers.htm

Cold fronts

Cold fronts are a result of cold air coming in behind warm air making the warm air rise and causing precipitationPic From: http://inthecloudhead.blogspot.com/2013/01/101-norwegian-polar-front-cyclone-model.html

Stationary front

A stationary front is one where warm and cold air meet and dont move anywhere or dont move very quicklyPic from: http://www.nc-climate.ncsu.edu/edu/k12/.fronts

Occulded Fronts

Formed when a cold front moves in on a warm front pushing the warm air off the groundPic From:http://www.shodor.org/os411/courses/411c/module04/unit02/page05.html

Rain

Air must be warm at the surface to create water vapor which then condenses causing rain.Pic from:https://pendown.wordpress.com/2008/08/11/rainraincome-again/

Hail

Hail forms when the ice nuclei travels up and down in the cloud growing in size.Pic from: http://exploringweather.com/thunderstorms.html
