cold front


Residents of North China have to get their heavy woollens out from today withacold frontclosing in and temperatures set to drop appreciably. Beijingers will feel autumn slipping away with the leaves blown away by increasingly cold winds. Winter will set in by the middle of next month.

Cold front 的意思是"冷锋",即冷空气气团的前锋部分。Front在气象学中指的是"锋",也就是冷暖气流的交界处。如:active front(活跃锋),arctic front(北极锋)。此外,"寒流"可表达为cold current.
