low
A region of relatively low pressure depicted by more or less circular and concentric isobars surrounding the center where the pressure is the lowest. The size of the low circulation may be as few as tens of yards (meters) as in a tornado, or it may be a few hundred miles (kilometers) as in a cyclone. A low is the first stage of a developing weather system. With deepening of the system, it becomes a depression, and, with further growth, it can form into a cyclone. In a low, the associated winds are up to 17 knots; in a depression, the speeds are from 17 to 27 knots; and, in a deep depression, they are up to 33 knots.
