- v. Present participle of advect.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
They are not too consistent on individual rain events though because they have a hard time initializing and advecting the weak disturbances that rotate around these upper lows and cause the precipitation events.
But I am also inferring another sentiment here mostly from other threads, that the warming that takes place over urban areas is then “advecting” to other areas significantly downstream, and thus, the UHI may actually explain regional or larger scale warming.
A warm front will pass over us today, advecting warmer temperatures and pleasant conditions, especially for Saturday.
Our attention turns to the very dry and cool airmass that's still advecting into New England on a northwest wind ahead of the anticyclone migrating east out of the Great Lakes.
