Page 22 - ... expect wet and stormy weather. These two types of weather correspond respectively to a condition of high atmospheric pressure or anticyclone and a state of low atmospheric pressure or cyclone. The winds in a cyclone are often strong and swirl round the centre of lowest pressure in great spirals with a direction opposite to that of the hands of a clock. When anticyclonic conditions prevail, the winds are light and move round the area of highest pressure in the same direction as the hands of a...
