SEVERE WEATHER AND FRONTS86. The diagram below shows a cross section of acumulus cloud. LineABindicates the base of thecloud.Which graph best represents the temperaturemeasured along lineAB?D)warm with low humidity and high air pressure87. A weather station model for a location in New YorkState is shown below.The air mass over this location is best described as88. The satellite photograph below shows a NorthernHemisphere cloud pattern.
