Divergence Cross-section

Slide Links:

Speaker Notes:

This cross section shows the sloping area of convergence (blue shading) associated with the front. Two speed maxima are indicated by the red contours; a low-level jet (greater than 40 kts) is indicated at 850 mb, and an upper level jet (greater than 90 kts) is indicated centered at around 200 mb. A large area of upper level divergence is indicated in the right entrance region of the upper-level jet streak.
