Fast moving cold fronts are pushed along by intense high pressure systems well beyond the front. Friction slows the surface movement which causes a huge & very steep wave effect. Because the temperatures & pressures are vastly different between the 2 locations it is a very strong phenomenon.
Those are less intense pain, but drag out for a while, several days or more.
Slow moving cold fronts basically mean that many clouds will form behind the frontal boundary.
Those to me are almost always non-specific pain, whole body just feels horrible.
Warm fronts occur when warm air moves over colder air at the surface. They are generally slower than cold fronts. The pressure & humidity determine what types of clouds will form.
Another drags out the pain one for me. Usually not horrifying pain, but just won't let up.
Stationary fronts occur when a cold front meets a warm front but the strength of each is equal. They can linger for days.
Those I call shifting fronts, hard to explain what happens, one type of pain, then it shifts to another. Like from specific pains to non-specific.
Occluded fronts occur when a front of one type (hot or cold) catches up & passes the other type. The main result is lots of clouds/fog/rain for a while & gradually changing temps & pressures.
Haven't felt those. Not looking forward to it :D
Frontal cyclones occur due to the differences in solar energy received at the equator & the earth's poles. A temperature gradient occurs & is concentrated along the polar front. If that temp gradient becomes large enough a disturbance (the cyclone) equalizes the pressure. This one will be all over the local news for sure:)
Or get the goats in the barn before they blow away!
In reference to the one pic that shows 5 or 6 different charts. In particular the wind related one. Those L shaped symbols that indicate direction also indicate strength. A short bar equals 5 knots. Long bars equal 10 knots. A triangular pennant shape equals 50 knots. So, if there is 2 long & one short bars it equals 25 knots wind speed. The orientation of the main bar indicates direction the wind is coming FROM. If there is a pennant it's time to go windsurfing!!!

I keep the barometric pressure lines showing on it, as well as wind

This typically results in a rush of anxiety/panic & depression, as fall/spring are the perfect seasons to tackle big projects outdoors due to the outside temps.

If you noticed the day before Thanksgiving, and probably Thanksgiving day also, were excessively painful or mood issues, you are probably barometric sensitive too. Which can't be improving the holiday for a lot of families....
