Which type of weather front can produce precipitation?

What type of weather front can produce precipitation rain or snow?

When a cold front overtakes a warm front, the temperature drops as the warm air mass is cut off from the ground and pushed upward. It can bring strong winds and heavy precipitation.

What type of front causes rain?

A stationary front may bring days of rain, drizzle, and fog. Winds usually blow parallel to the front, but in opposite directions. After several days, the front will likely break apart. When a cold air mass takes the place of a warm air mass, there is a cold front.

Where is precipitation in a warm front?

The air mass behind a warm front is likely to be warmer and more moist than the one before the front. If a warm front is approaching, light rain or light winter precipitation is possible before and as the front passes. Behind the front, expect clearing skies, warmer temperatures and higher relative humdities.

Why clouds and precipitation are associated with fronts?

In the case of a warm front, the warm, less dense air rises up and over the colder air ahead of the front. Again, the air cools as it rises and its moisture condenses to produce clouds and precipitation.
