Cold fronts are often closely associated with low pressure systems, normally lying at the leading edge of high pressure systems and, in the case of the polar front, at approximately the equatorward edge of the high-level polar jet.
On weather maps, the surface position of the cold front is marked with the symbol of a blue line of triangles/spikes (pips) pointing in the direction of travel.
Fronts are the principal cause of significant weather.
