Symbology MET

Fronts consist of a line with various half-shapes which depict which way the front is moving. Sometimes these are coloured, but to make it more difficult the examiner may make them black and white.

  • (Red) half circles: a warm front.
  • (Blue) triangle: a cold front.
  • (Purple) half circles and triangles on the same side of the line: an occluded front.
  • (Red and Blue) half circles and triangles on opposite sides of the line: an quasi-stationary (not moving) front.
