5 Years in the forum (actually 5 year today :D) and nobody has informed you (or you haven't informed yourself) why winds are generally northerly before a front and why the temps generally rise ahead of a big front ?. Or are you just having a lend of us Vinny ?. :D

I wasn't having a go at you Vinny, I was extremely surprised that in 5 years it hasn't already come up as a question or in general discussion on the forum.

Hard to describe without diagrams but it's good to see someone already beat me to the diagrams I was going to post up for you.

A big drop in the temperature, at 3:00pm it was 18 degrees at Jandakot, now it's 12.9 degrees.

It was 19.1 degrees at 3:00pm in Perth, and now it's 13.4 degrees.
