A student is taking observations of the weather patterns in her area for 5 days. She collects the data and puts it into the following data table. What type of front does the student’s data best indicate has occurred?

A Cold front

A cold front has most likely moved through the student’s area. During a cold front, cold air wedges its way under warmer air. Because warmer air is less dense, it will rises on top of the colder air. As the cold front moves through an area, typically a line of showers or a severe storm does, too.
