  2. a low pressure zone where wind blows inward and counter clockwise
  3. a high pressure zone where wind blows outward and clockwise
  4. pressure gradients
  5. upper atmosphere wind that separates cold air masses from warm air masses
  6. the sun

6 True/False questions

  1. what happens in a low pressure zone?air rises in a low pressure zone and condenses to form clouds, the temperature cools

          

  2. warm frontwarm moist tropical air replaces cold dry polar air, precipitation comes ahead of the front

          

  3. what happens in a high pressure zone?air rises in a low pressure zone and condenses to form clouds, the temperature cools

          

  4. coriolis effecta cold polar air mass advances onto a warm air mass, cold dry stable air replaces warm, moist unstable maritime air, there is often precipitation behind the front

          

  5. air pressurethe amount of pressure exerted by weight of air

          

  6. how is air pressure affected?uneven heating from the sun
