meteorology and weather.

In high pressure the air presses down with more force than usual. This usually means air is sinking. High pressure systems typically bring calm, clear weather.

In low pressure air presses down with less force than usual. This most often indicates rising air. Low pressure systems often bring cloudy or stormy weather.
