This map combines a surface
analysis map with a color-enhanced infrared image from
a satellite. The locations of fronts are indicated with
standard symbols. A key showing weather front symbols
is located at: Weather Map Front Symbols
The colored part of this image
shows the temperature at the tops of the clouds. As
temperature decreases with increasing height in the
lower atmosphere, colder clouds indicate higher clouds.
