Jetstream

It can be very useful to view the synoptic surface isolines on the chart above in conjunction with Jetstream animated winds below. 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.
