THE WARM FRONT 

A warm front is the line of discontinuity where the forward edge of an advancing mass of relatively warm air is replacing a retreat-ing relatively colder air mass. The slope of the warm front is usually between 1:100 and 1:300, with occasional fronts with lesser slopes. Therefore, warm fronts have characteristically shallow slopes caused by the effect of surface friction that retards the frontal movement near the ground.

Learning Objective: Describe the characteristics and weather of warm fronts at the surface and aloft.
