#WxGeekSpeak: Inversion

Every week, the blog introduces you to a technical term from the American Meteorology Society’s “Glossary of Meteorology”. Welcome to #WxGeekSpeak!

Full definition of inversion: In meteorology, a departure from the usual decrease or increase with altitude of the value of an atmospheric property; also, the layer through which this departure occurs (the “inversion layer”), or the lowest altitude at which the departure is found (the “base of the inversion”).
