Weather map science help | Science homework help
I need an A on this and need it quickly. Please look this over and make sure you can complete it. I had another except it and do it completly wrong. My teacher will not accept late work so neither will I. It has to be done by Friday 5/01/15 evening. Please dont commit if you cant do this. Please dont waste my time or yours. A few parts to this assignment please read.
- Draw isobars for every 4mb of pressure (988, 992, 996, etc.).
- Using the correct symbols, draw the positions of the warm and cold fronts.
- Save the image for submission.
4 Assume that the system is moving 300 miles/day due east. Using the bar scale at the bottom of the map, forecast the weather for the following cities in a separate document. You might need an atlas for this part.
- Austin, TX
- Bangor, ME
- Columbia, SC
- Denver, CO
- Jacksonville, FL
- Louisville, KY
- Memphis, TN
- New York, NY
- Pittsburgh, PA
Starting with the map we are looking at weather data from around the country for one day. Please make sure to read the interactive lecture in order to understand the symbols. One important thing to notice is the short hand used for the atmospheric pressure – please pay close attention to that in the lecture.
I would start by printing out a copy of that map. Hand write in all of the atmospheric pressures without the short hand (for example, for Seattle the symbol designates 032 as the pressure. This would actually be 1003.2). Once you have those written on your hard copy, then you are ready for the next step.
Question #2 asks you to draw the position of any warm and cold fronts on the map. The link above also provides information about warm and cold fronts and the symbols used to draw them. In general you are looking for patterns on the map where it seems like there is a sharp distinction between warm and cold temps. For example, I see a strong temp difference between the weather stations in New Mexico and Colorado when compared to the weather stations in Oklahoma and Texas (consider that a huge hint!).
Now for Question #4, it asks you to do some predicting. It says that we can assume that the system is moving to the east at 300 miles/day. Take a piece of paper and mark that distance on it (using the graphic scale bar on the bottom of the map). Find the locations on the map using Google or some other search engine and mark them on your map. Now, using your slip of paper with your 300 miles marked on it, look west from each location and see what the weather is. For example, for Pittsburgh, PA, 300 miles to the west is in the middle of Indiana. The weather in Indiana will be the weather in Pittsburgh in the next day’s weather. So, based on the information that you can interpolate from your completed weather map, you can predict what the weather for tomorrow will be
