The weather in Scotland is highly influenced by a semi-permanent pressure system called the Icelandic Low, and that in Morocco by another called the Azores High.
The NAO is a climatic phenomenon in the north Atlantic of fluctuations in the difference of sea-level pressure between the Icelandic low and the Azores high.
The Icelandic low, about 1,000 km (600 miles) to the southwest, is a source of frequent weather systems that move eastward across the island.
When the NAO is in its low state, the Icelandic low pressure center is displaced far to the south, off Newfoundland, and there is a high pressure center over northern Greenland, causing cold dry polar air to blow across northern Europe, and then westward across the northern subpolar area towards North America, warming on the way by the heat liberated from the ocean to the overlying atmosphere.
