Weather Fronts, What are they?

Weather fronts

Weather fronts mark the boundary between two air masses, which often have contrasting properties. For example, one air mass may be cold and dry and the other air mass may be relatively warm and moist. These differences produce a reaction in a zone known as a front.

Gale force winds and heavy rain to affect southern Australia.
