It can be very useful to view the synoptic chart below in conjunction with Jetstream map (further down). The Jetstream has a significant influence on the pressure systems at surface level. In places where it is speeding up, slowing down, splitting or bending, it is often referred to as an “upper level disturbance”.

More info and charts on the Jet Stream can be found at the California Regional Weather Server, sponsored by the Department of Earth & Climate Sciences at San Francisco State University. The California Regional Weather Server provides more detail, including a general description of jet stream analysis and forecast maps.

The Aerological Diagram (AKA Skew T-Log P or Thermodynamic diagram) below from Adelaide Airport can give a good indication of the heights at which clouds will form. Here is a PDF explanation of how to intepret these diagrams courtesy of the Australian Bureau of Meterology.

It is a worthwhile exercise to read this Aerological Diagram in conjunction with viewing the cloud cover as seen in the Parafield Weather Web Cams HERE
