Tracking Depressions All
extracts courtesy of the MarineCall Guide
Depressions often circulate in groups as shown in the diagram (left)...
D : depression A : stationary anticyclone a : ridge of high pressure
Most frequently atlantic depressions follow similar tracks which
head to the north of Europe Others will follow a more southerly track.
They have a tendency to track over the relatively warm sea in winter
and over the land in summer.
