The cold, snowy side of a winter cyclone is usually to the ______ of the storm track.
a)west and north
b)east and south
d)none of the above are correct
west and north
Weather on the left side (west and north) of an extratropical cyclone's track (path) tends to be relatively cold, whereas weather on the right (east and south) of the cyclone's track tends to be relatively warm. For this reason, winter snows are most likely to the west and north of the path of a low-pressure system.
