Are airmasses always cold and wet?
No, They can be COLD, WET; COLD,DRY; WARM, WET; or WARM, DRY.
Both temperate and tropical cyclones are low pressure adiabatic systems. However, the temperate cyclones are those which occur in mid latitudes i.e. 400 to 600 N & S. These are formed due to convergence of the warm (tropical) and Cold (Polar) airmasses. This is important to note that there confusion somewhere that these are formed by the convergence of warm and cold winds. Difference between winds and airmasses should carefully be understood. These cyclones, being…
Why does your hair feel colder under an air conditioning vent when your hair is wet than when it is dry?
ANSWER: You can get problems from exposure to the elements with hypothermia from being cold and wet enough. Infectious diseases occur from the transfer of bacterium, viruses, fungi, and other microbes, not from the weather.
