Warm Front at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre on 2013-09-24
A very dramatic front passed over our station at Bamfield this morning. It was
very intense and of relatively short duration.
Several variables are overlain on this plot to show how sharp the
changes were. Temperature is red and corresponds to the chart scale. Raintotal,
barometric pressure and wind gust are blue and their scales are not shown.
The temperature observed on 2013-09-24.
The wind speed increased considerably and sharply coincident with the front.
Sailors would call this a veering wind (during the event)
since it appears to move clockwise if you are facing into it.
The barometric Pressure fell before the front, levelled off for a time and then rose sharply before
returning to it' previous level and continuing to fall.
