This is my surface analysis for today. Sorry for the not so great quality, but I’ve outlined the important stuff. This is how a meteorologist views things such as pressure fields (the curvy dark black lines all over the map), airflow (the yellow arrows on the map), clouds (the purple cloudy looking stuff on the map), precipitation (the green areas with dots on the map), and important atmospheric features, such as ridges (squiggly black lines) and troughs (dashed black lines). It’s the first step to forecasting! Anyways, just thought I’d share!
