  1. when air reaches saturation because it has been heated and it rises because it's density has been reduced.
  2. a state in which the air is "holding" all of the water that it can take at a given temperature.
  3. a nearly motionless boundary between a cold air mass and a warm air mass. Winds blow parallel to the front, but in opposite directions on the two sides of the front.
  4. a visible mass of water droplets or ice crystals that are suspended in an air layer that is NOT in contact with the ground.
  5. water droplets formed by condensation of water vapor on a relatively cold surfaces like grass, cars, etc.
  6. a boundary that forms when a cold front overtakes a warm front.

  3. Cold Fronta boundary in which a warm air mass is over taking a cold air mass.

          

  4. Radiation Foga ground level cloud formed by nighttime radiational cooling of a humid air layer. Common on clear nights with light winds over damp areas such as rain soaked fields or wetlands.

          

  5. Air Massa large volume of air with uniform temperature and water vapor concentrations.
