(Meteorology) See low pressure area and extratropical cyclone.
low or inferior in station or quality; "a humble cottage"; "a lowly parish priest"; "a modest man of the people"; "small beginnings"
low in spirits; "lonely and blue in a strange city"; "depressed by the loss of his job"; "a dispirited and resigned expression on her face"; "downcast after his defeat"; "feeling discouraged and downhearted"
Areas of atmosphere that have lower air pressure than the surrounding areas.
an area of low pressure usually characterized by clouds of precipitation caused by rising air; often related to inclement weather such as winds flowing counter clockwise and into the center of the low.
A cyclonic storm that most often forms along a front in middle and high latitudes.
Abbreviated form of low pressure center.
An area of relatively low atmospheric pressure in which winds tend to move in a counterclockwise direction, spiraling in toward the low's center.
A region of air with lower barometric pressure then the area surrounding it that rotates counter-clockwise; usually associated with stormy weather
in meteorology, an region of low pressure; see also cyclone
an area of low atmospheric pressure that has an air circulation counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere.
An area of low barometric pressure, with its attendant system of winds. Also called a depression or cyclone.
A low is an area of low pressure. It may be found anywhere, but only has the potential to gain tropical characteristics if it is over water.
(weather) a low-pressure system, characterized by a counterclockwise wind pattern (in the Northern Hemisphere), generally cloudy, rainy weather, and rough seas. See high.
A region of low pressure. Air flows inwards and (on the northern hemisphere) counterclockwise around a low. A low centre is usually accompanied by precipitation and strong winds. Also called "depression". Back to the top
The center of an area of low pressure, usually accompanied by cyclonic and inward wind flow. Also known as a cyclone.
An area of low atmospheric pressure that has a closed counter-clockwise circulation in the Northern Hemisphere. Also known as a cyclone. MARINE WIND WARNINGS Small Craft Warning - issued if winds are forecast to be in the range of 20 to 33 knots inclusive. Gale Warning - issued if winds are forecast to be in the range of 34 to 47 knots inclusive. Storm Warning - issued if the winds are forecast to be in the range of 48 to 63 knots inclusive. Hurricane Force Wind Warning - issued for winds of 64 knots or greater.
An area of low atmospheric pressure, also called a cyclone.
An area of low barometric pressure; a low pressure system.
An area of low atmospheric pressure and counter-clockwise winds in the Northern Hemisphere.
Another term for a depression. A deep low pressure area with winds gusting to 150 miles per hour during January, 1921, destroyed eight times as many Douglas fir trees in Washington and Oregon as did the great volcanic explosion of Mount St. Helens in May 1980! Though we should consider the fact that Mt. St. Helen's eruption was considered a tiny burp compared to other eruptions
The centre of an area with low atmospheric pressure.
The center of an area with low atmospheric pressure.
(Sometimes called depression.) In meteorology, an "area of low pressure," referring to a minimum of atmospheric pressure in two dimensions (closed isobars) on a constant-height chart or a minimum of height (closed contours) on a constant-pressure chart. Since a low is, on a synoptic chart, always associated with cyclonic circulation, the term is used interchangeably with cyclone. Compare high.
A meteorological term used to denote a region of low pressure, or depression.
