Usually Cold Fronts are associated with cold advection behind the frontal zone and warm advection ahead of it, but sometimes the whole front is under cold advection. These are called Cold Fronts in Cold Advection. Cold Fronts in Cold Advection form mostly over the Atlantic, and are more common in the winter than during the summer season. The stage of Cold Fronts in CA last generally 0,5-2 days. In the earlier stages there is often a significant dark stripe behind the front due to the very cold dry air.
