A warm weather front doesn’t necessarily mean that warm weather is on the way. It can often mean drastic changes in the climate, and not always for the better.
Warm weather fronts can have a different impact in different areas depending on where in the world they occur and often these weather extremes can be dangerous if you are caught out or unprepared, causing not just inconvenience but personal injury.
Possible results of a warm weather front
- Heavy rain: A warm weather front will not only introduce warmer temperatures but usually an increase in moisture too. If you are not prepared for this, flash flooding can often lead to road accidents for unsuspecting motorists.
- Snow: When a warm front meets a cold front, the fusion of the two can often cause heavy snow fall. If you are not prepared for such a change in climate you may be putting yourself at risk of a slip, trip or fall or an accident on the road.
- High winds: When you think of a warm front you automatically think of long sunny days and high temperatures, but some of the most violent storms in the world can be caused by warm fronts. High winds aren’t just dangerous for structures and buildings, but also pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, who all could be victims of road accidents.
- Strong sunshine: As well as unsettled and unpredictable weather, a warm front can also bring with it fine and hot weather, which also means strong sunshine. So if you are planning on heading out in these conditions, you need to be aware that there is the potential to be burnt very easily. So make sure you use plenty of sun block and don’t stay in the sun for prolonged periods of time.
