Frontal rainfall ( By Joash Chan Wye Kin)

Rain occurs everywhere in the world everyday. It is very common and many people knows how it is formed. But there are actually different types of rain. Frontal rainfall is a type of rainfall. This is how it is formed:

  1. The warm air rises faster than the cold air as it is less dense.
  2. When the 2 types of air meet, the warmer air which is lighter rises over the cold air.
  3. The warm air then cools down as it is high.
  4. Clouds are then formed by the warm air.
  5. Front is where the warm air meets the cold air. Frontal rainfall is very common in Britain, especially during the winter.
