Why on a Polar Front Jet Stream does the core form on the tropical (warm air) side and not on the polar (cold air) side? Thank you in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you add more? I'd imagine the jet stream sets up above the gradient, as suggested by thermal wind, but perhaps some source/reference/information about your position, or examples, would help make your statement more clear? $\endgroup$ – JeopardyTempest Jan 16 '17 at 17:00
