Quick Reference

An uncommon type of secondary depression that forms on the warm front far ahead (1 000–1 500 km) of the parent depression. Such secondaries generally move rapidly away eastwards or south-eastwards, and, although normally shallow, may cause prolonged precipitation along the warm front.
