Air Pressure Systems 2: Depressions

In this lesson we will learn about the typical sequence of weather brought about by the passage of a mid-latitude depression. We will understand the meaning and sequence of the warm front, warm sector, cold front and occluded front and the typical weather associated with each. We will also learn how to recognise a depression on a weather chart and be able to forecast the weather for a particular locality shown on a weather chart that shows a mid-latitude depression.
