(abbrev. HI)- In meteorology, a region of high pressure; also known as anticyclone.
An area of high barometric pressure, with its attendant system of winds; an anticyclone.
A region of high pressure. Air flows outward and (on the northern hemisphere) clockwise around high pressure areas. A high is usually associated with fair weather. Also called "anticyclone".
A region of high-atmospheric pressure, with clockwise winds in the Northern Hemisphere.
an air mass of higher than normal pressure; "the east coast benefits from a Bermuda high"
an area of high pressure with winds moving clockwise. It often brings fine weather.
Areas of atmosphere that have higher air pressure than the surrounding areas.
an area of high pressure that is usually characterized by clear skies and fair weather carried by sinking air; winds rotate clockwise around and outward from the center of the high.
An area of high pressure around which the wind blows clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
An area of relatively high-atmospheric pressure, also called an anticyclone.
The center of an area of high pressure, accompanied by anticyclonic and outward wind flow in the northern hemisphere. Also known as an anticyclone.
A region of air with higher barometric pressure than the area surrounding it, around which winds rotate clockwise; usually associated with fair weather
in meteorology, an region of high pressure; see also anticyclone
An area of higher atmospheric pressure.
(weather) a high-pressure system, characterized by a clockwise wind pattern (in the Northern Hemisphere) and generally clear and pleasant weather. See low.
The center of an area of high pressure, usually accompanied by anti cyclonic and outward wind flow. Also known as an anticyclone.
In the Northern Hemisphere, an area of high atmospheric pressure with a closed, clockwise movement of air (circulation). Also known as an anticylone.
An area of high barometric pressure; a high pressure system.
Commonly used to refer to an anticyclone.
The centre of an area with high atmospheric pressure.
area of high pressure in the atmosphere; used interchangeably with anticyclone. Russian translation prepared by Nina A. Zaitseva for the Arctic Climatology Project Arctic Meteorology and Climate Atlas.
The center of an area with high atmospheric pressure.
Also known as an 'anticyclone' - an area of high air pressure with a system of winds rotating outwards. This usually means dry weather. It is the opposite of a 'low'.
