Which typical weather situation over Central Europe is shown on the weather chart? (Spacing of the isobars: 5 hPa)
  • A
    Flat pressure pattern.
  • B
    Warm south wind condition (Foehn).
  • C
    Cutting wind.
  • D
    West wind condition.
Widely spaced isobars indicate the same atmospheric pressure over large areas. This implies both a flat pressure pattern and a small pressure gradient force. Since the pressure gradient force is small, we can expect very light or calm wind.
