In meteorology, "precipitation types" can include the character or phase of the precipitation which is falling to ground level. There are three distinct ways that precipitation can occur. Convective precipitation is generally more intense, and of shorter duration, than stratiform precipitation. Orographic precipitation occurs when ...

... falls with altitude because the Earth's atmosphere is heated from the Earth's surface up over. When the water droplets in clouds grow to a certain size, gravity causes them to fall because of their own weight. There are 3 different types of Precipitation formation; Relief Rainfall Convectional Rainfall Frontal rainfall. Activities ...

Frontal Rain. The UK lies in an area where warm tropical air meets cold polar air. When two air masses meet, they do not mix readily due to differences in temperature and density. A front is an imaginary line separating two contrasting air masses. Fronts are areas where rainfall takes place. A warm front is found when warm ...

Frontal rainfall is a type of condensation that occurs when a cold front meets a warm front. Warm air is less dense than cold air. When the two air masses meet, warm air is forced over the cold air,...

Frontal rainfall. The British Isles are affected by a number of different air masses. When warm and cold air meet, a depression forms: When a cold polar air mass meets a warm tropical air mass they do not mix – they form fronts. The colder air mass is heavier than the warmer air mass, therefore the lighter, warmer air rises ...

Precipitation is often classified according to the factor responsible for lifting. Broadly speaking, there are four types of precipitation. Cyclonic precipitation: It results from lifting of air masses converging into low-pressure area of cyclone. It may be decided into: a) Frontal precipitation. b) Non-Frontal precipitation. a) Frontal ...

A frontal precipitation is either a precipitation of rain or snow along a warm, cold or even an occlusion front. It works like this: When warmer air meets co...
