1. Prepare a description of the annual weather patterns that your location (Winnipeg) experiences throughout the year. Refer to the general air pass patterns, as well as the types of weather systems that occur in each season.
2. The ITCZ moves north and south with the seasons. Describe how this movement affects the four low-latitude climates.
3. Discuss the role of the polar front and the air masses that come in conflict in the polar-front zone in the temperature and precipitation cycles of the mid-latitude and high-latitude climates.
4. Compare and contrast orographic and convectional precipitation. Begin with a discussion of the adiabatic process and the generation of precipitation within clouds. Can convectional precipitation occur in an orographic situation? Under what condition?
