When the term "light and variable" is used in reference to a Winds Aloft Forecast, the coded group and windspeed is
The boundary between two different air masses is referred to as a
(Refer to Figure 262, area C.) The wind at Circle C is forecast to blow from which direction and at what velocity?
(Refer to Figure 21.) On what frequency can a pilot receive Hazardous Inflight Weather Advisory Service (HIWAS) in the vicinity of area 1?
Which type of weather briefing should a pilot request to supplement mass disseminated data?
What values are used for Winds Aloft Forecasts?
Low-level turbulence can occur and icing can become hazardous in which type of fog?
Steady precipitation preceding a front is an indication of

What are the standard temperature and pressure values for sea level?
(Refer to Figure 17.) What wind is forecast for STL at 12,000 feet?
What should pilots state when telephoning a weather briefing facility for preflight weather information?

(Refer to Figure 19.) How are Significant Weather Prognostic Charts best used by a pilot?

(Refer to Figure 19.) Interpret the weather symbol depicted in Utah on the 12-hour Significant Weather Prognostic Chart.
A nonfrontal, narrow band of active thunderstorms that often develop ahead of a cold front is a known as a
Squall lines are bands of severe thunderstorms that tend to develop ahead of fast-moving cold fronts. These squall lines often contain severe steady-state thunderstorms. This is the single most intense weather hazard for aircraft. Answer A is incorrect because a squall line is a specific type of a prefrontal system. Answer C is incorrect because a dry line is a front across which there is seldom any significant air mass contrast other than moisture content.
What conditions are necessary for the formation of thunderstorms?
When warm, moist, stable air flows upslope, it
Which weather phenomenon signals the beginning of the mature stage of a thunderstorm?
In which environment is aircraft structural ice most likely to have the highest accumulation rate?
What feature is associated with a temperature inversion?
