Diurnal Variation of Wind - Exam Question

Hi all,

Just wondering if you can help me with a question I got wrong in the CPL Met exam. Went something like this:

A pressure system has been stationary over a flat inland surface for 12 hours from midnight to midday. Describe the variation expected in wind speed and direction:

a) Remain the same
b) Increase and veer
c) Increase and back
d) Decrease and veer
e) Decrease and back

Can't seem to find any reference to this in the text book.

Thanks,

Angus

I just logged on to look this up because I think I got this question wrong on the exam too.

I found a thread from a while ago which I think has the best explanation - www.bobtait.com.au/forum/meteorology/133...stion-has-me-stumped

Based on this, I would say c) - Increase and back as the temperature rises throughout the morning. I can't remember what I chose on the actual exam though.

D.
