Weather Map And Summary Description
The letter, L on the map represents low pressure and the letter H on the map represents high-pressure. The blue lines with triangles on them represent a cold front and the red lines with half circles on them represent a warm front. A stationary front will be a red and blue line with alternating blue triangles and red half circles. An occluded front will be indicated by a purple line with purple half circles and purple triangles. The polar jetstream is indicated by yellow arrows and the longer the arrows, the stronger, the jetstream. Green arrows represent the tropical jetstream, which is shown much less frequently as the polar jet is much more pronounced, especially in the winter months.
