Due to the geographic location of the Valsan valley in the southern half of the country, on the southern side of Fagaras mountains, this region is predominantly subject to the influence of the four semi-permanent baric centers of thermal or dynamic origin: Azores Anticyclone (with maximum influence in the summer), Icelandic Cyclone (with maximum influence in winter), Siberian anticyclone and Mediterranean Cyclone.
The principal influences on the atmospheric pressure patterns of the UAE, he said, are the Siberian anticyclone (area of high pressure) in winter, and in summer the Asiatic low centred over central and southern Asia extending a broad belt across the continent at approximately 30 degrees north.
