The symbol for a cold front. Fronts are the boundaries between two air masses. Fronts are classified as to which type of air mass (cold or warm) is replacing the other. For example, a cold front demarcates the leading edge of a cold air mass displacing a warmer air mass. A warm front is the leading edge of a warmer air mass replacing a colder air mass.

If the front is essentially not moving (i.e. the air masses are not moving) it is called a stationary front. Learn more about our weather in JetStream - An Online School for Weather.
