Synoptic Charts
« on: Nov 07, 2007, 08:48 »
Please can someone bring me up to speed with the various front symbols used on the synoptic charts. I am conversant with the regular WARM, COLD & OCCLUDED fronts but there are ofter others with broken lines or triangles & semi- circles that have white centres ie. not coloured in black. The chart I normally view is the black/white by Wetterzentrale/Wetterkarten to be found on the FINDAFISHINGBOAT web site. There are some of these unusual fronts there at the moment.

Thanks

Thanks for that.

Although the symbols are in colour on the link I imagine they tell the same story as black/white therefore the triangles & semi-circles with white centres are dry fronts.

Still looking for additional information if anyone can help.

Thanks

To be a little more precise about what I am trying to establish. There are fronts marked on the charts which are obviously COLD, WARM & OCCLUDED fronts but have along them a line of +   +   +   +   +   +   +   +'s

This clearly has a meaning?

Thanks

I think it just means that the front has decayed and is a very weak feature.
