September - rain You are here: Home Photo gallery Clouds Severe weather Gust fronts


A cold downdraft of air and precipitation, causing sudden wind changes in direction and velocity, when a storm is about to pass over. Gust fronts can take many shapes and forms, from being much invisible except for a precipitation curtain, to highly turbulent dust clouds near the ground. The gust front is usually very transient in form: it travels fast and changes appearance quickly.
