Thursday’s Ask Storm Team 11 question: What is a cold front?
A cold front is a feature noted on surface weather maps separating a warm, moist airmass from a cooler, drier air mass. A classic cold front is also attached to an area of low pressure. The counter-clockwise flow around the low pressure brings in cooler air behind the front and warmer air stays ahead of it. You can often get showers and thunderstorms along a cold front, too.
