What would you like to do?
The wind blows clockwise around a high pressure area and counterclockwise around a low pressure area.
A low pressure system in the northern hemisphere rotates counter-clockwise.
counterclockwise and outward from the center
In the Northern Hemisphere, winds associated with a high-pressure system blow clockwise towards the center.
How will the winds blowing out of a high pressure system in the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere blow?
They will blow in opposite directions.
In the Northern Hemisphere winds blow to the between the subtropical high pressure zone and subpolar low pressure zone?
The winds that blow between the subtropical high pressure zone and the sub-polar low pressure zone are called westerly winds. These winds curve to the east because of the …Coriolis effect.
In which direction do surface winds around low-pressure centers in the Northern Hemisphere generally move?
counter clockwise and towards the center of the low-pressure
Near the Earth's surface, air will spiral from high to low pressure at a rate determined by the pressure gradient (and at an angle relative to that gradient). The Earth's rota…tion turns the air as it moves from high to low pressure, so the air doesn't make a bee-line from high to low as it would if the Earth didn't rotate. Higher up in the atmosphere, the air is deflected at nearly a 90 degree angle, so the air flows almost parallel to the pressure gradient.
Air circulates clockwise around a high pressure system in the northern hemisphere, counter-clockwise in the southern hemisphere.
What causes the clockwise circulation of air around a center of high pressure in the northern hemisphere?
The Coriolis effect. This is due to the rotation of the Earth and the heating of the Earth by the Sun.
Winds in a northern hemisphere low pressure system rotate counterclockwise around the low pressure center.
They circulate clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, and counter clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
In the northern hemisphere, air spirals counter-clockwise around centers of low pressure and clockwise around centers of high pressure.
They Blow Clockwise
