Reading Weather Maps 1) Examine the surface weather map presented in Map 1 .  The weather symbols shown  are those commonly seen on television and in newspaper.  The H's and L's identify  centers of relatively high and low air pressure compared to their surroundings.  These  pressure systems are commonly 500-1000 miles across.  The air pressure readings  leading up to the Low located in lower Michigan would be decreasing or increasing in  valuation? Answer: 2)   The thick curved lines on the map are air mass boundaries.  In the atmosphere, broad  expanses of air with generally uniform temperature, humidity, and density come in  contact with other masses of air having different temperature, humidity, and density.   Because air masses of different densities do not readily mix, the boundaries separating air masses tend to remain distinct.  These boundaries, which are actually narrow zones of  transition, called  fronts , typically separate warm and cold air.   (a)  The front in the Southeastern U.S. is what kind of front?   Answer: (b)  According to the map, persons living in South Carolina can expect what kind  of weather after the front passes? Answer: 3)   Precipitation is depicted on weather maps by a variety of symbols including dots or  periods for rain, horizontal lines for fog, and stars or asterisks for __________________ . Answer: 4) Refer to the model legend (Selected Weather Map Symbols) to interpret the following  plotted data: a) Temperature:__ F.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
