    Base your answers to questions 4 on the weather map below and on your knowledge of Earth science. On the weather map, the location of the center of a high-pressure system (H) and a front are shown. Isobar values are labeled in millibars (mb). Weather station models represent the weather conditions at Atlanta, Georgia, and Tampa, Florida.

    Base your answers to questions 5 on the diagram below and on your knowledge of Earth science. The diagram represents a weather balloon as it rises from Earth’s surface to 1000 meters (m). The air temperature and wet-bulb temperature values in degrees Celsius (°C) and the air pressure values in millibars (mb) are given for three altitudes.
