Occluded Front Weather MET

To get the weather for each type of occlusion, take the same kind of front (so warm occlusion: warm front), think about the weather, and make it worse (as the warm air is forced further upwards, cooling it more rapidly in both cases.)

For a warm occlusion, this will mean thick nimbostratus/stratus with heavy rain/drizzle and potential freezing rain.

For a cold occlusion, this will mean heavy thunderstorms, with all the associated dangers.
