Low Pressure A low-pressure area, or low, is a region where the atmospheric pressure at sea level is lower than that of surrounding locations. Low pressure is often warm.
High Pressure A high-pressure area is a region where the atmospheric pressure at the surface of the planet is greater than its surrounding environment. High Pressure areas are often cold.
Cold Front The boundary of an advancing mass of cold air. Colds fronts generally bring a short period of heavy rain, and later bring cold weather.
Warm Front The boundary of an advancing mass of warm air, in particular the leading edge of the warm sector of a low-pressure system. Warm fronts generally bring warm, moist, rainy days.
