Important question about weather

Asked by: 2158 views ,
Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor, General Aviation, Instrument Rating, Private Pilot, Student Pilot

First I would like the owner of this informative webiste to add "weather" option to the "Select Category" items. My question: The Gleim instrument prep book states: 1.The threat of low-level wind shear occurs just before the warm warm front passes the airport. 2. With a cold front, the most critical period for wind shear occurs just as or just after the cold front passes the airport. The above statements make no sense for me. Any comment to help me make sense of this is highly appreciated.

    Get ahold of Aviation Weather and take a look at the vertical profile of the warm front and cold front. That should make things apparent. Just Google it and download from the FAA website.
