    A front in weather is the divide between air masses with different properties. So, a gust front is the line between the downdraft pouring out of a thunderstorm after it hits the ground and proceeds outward and the relatively still air it is charging into.

    As rain falls in a thunder storm, it displaces air. That air is felt as a gust front.
