    • All sorts of weather systems can have an impact, dependent on the location, such as mid-latitude cyclones, subtropical anticyclones, monsoon systems, and tropical cyclones.
    • In our hemisphere, areas of high barometric pressure, anticyclones, create winds which circulate anticlockwise.
    • The South African Weather Service told The Star on Monday that the heat is due to an anticyclone or high pressure system in the upper air.
    • During this period favoured locations for centres of anticyclones are the Great Victoria Desert and central New South Wales.
    • Institute scientist Jim Salinger said the fine, settled winter weather was caused by more anticyclones than usual across northern New Zealand.
    • Stratocumulus is usually a sign of old fronts and is also associated with static anticyclones.
    • In polar and sub-tropical regions there are large semi permanent anticyclones (high-pressure areas).
    • This anticyclone will dominate the weather scene for the following few days.
    • These anticyclones diverted rain-bearing frontal systems away from the country for much of the time and as a result it was a dry but cloudy month everywhere.

    • The resident anticyclone continues in its fixed abode.
    • The strong anticyclone drifts slowly across the sub-continent during the weekend.
    • The low pressure area departed during Thursday as a new anticyclone reached and passed the Cape.
    • The anticyclones are spinning in different directions, such that they keep a delicate balance with one another.
    • Such wind systems indicate the regular passage of the anticyclones well to the south of the sub-continent.
