Synoptic Chart Interpretation


Brabro

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I'm a newcomer to this forum! I wonder if you might be able to help me understand what's happening on this synoptic chart?

What I can see, there appears to be an occluded cyclone in the Atlantic moving North/Eastwards.

I'd like to know why there is an extended cold front and warm front merging in the centre of the occluded front?

What does this mean exactly?

 

Thanks!

Hey.

Thanks, but I just want to know why the cold and warm fronts are so extended, right to the bottom of the chart? Is there a reason for this?
