Slide 5 Slide 6 To access synoptic chart GO TO: The Australian Bureau of Meteorology Homepage www.bom.gov.au Navigate to here Slide 7 Use the synoptic chart to identify the weather in Strahan Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Rain (yes/no) Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Direction Strahan Find the: Temperature Rain Wind Speed Wind Direction Slide 8 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE What can we look at? Slide 9 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE The date Season? By area North South Low pressure system Associated with cooler weather High pressure system Associated with warmer temperatures Slide 10 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE The Seasons: Summer: December to February Autumn: March to May Winter: June to August Spring: September to November Slide 11 Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE What is the temperature likely to be for HOBART?? Slide 12 What is the date? Where is Hobart? Is it in a Low pressure or High pressure system? Use the synoptic chart to identify TEMPERATURE Temperature (Hot, warm, mild, cold) Hobart COLD Winter Southern Location N Slide 13 What can we look at?

Rain (yes/no) Hobart MAYBE Cold front passed Shaded Slide 15 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND SPEED What can we look at? Slide 16 Wind Speed (strong/med /light) Hobart STRONG Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND SPEED What is the likely wind speed in HOBART?? Closeness of isobars? Presence of cold front? Presence Low pressure system? Close isobars Cold front Slide 17 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What can we look at? Slide 18 Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What is the likely wind direction for HOBART?? Isobars? Low pressure? High pressure? Slide 19 LOW pressure system = CYCLONE = CLOCKWISE HIGH pressure system = ANTICYCLONE = ANTI-CLOCKWISE Slide 20 Slide 21 Wind Direction Hobart SOUTH / South west Use the synoptic chart to identify WIND DIRECTION What is the likely wind direction for HOBART?? Isobars? Low pressure? High pressure?
