What are the essential differences between mesoscale and synoptic scale systems?
Using an appropriate website with synoptic weather maps (see Appendix 4D), trace the movement of frontal and non-frontal lows/troughs and high-pressure cells over a five-day period, determining rates of displacement and changes of intensity of the systems.
In the same manner, examine the relationship of surface lows and highs to features at the 500-mb level.
Consider the geographical distribution and seasonal occurrence of different types of non-frontal low-pressure systems.
