"The difference is the pressure system or the synoptic system, that affects the region." In weather terms, synoptic this means the pressure pattern, fronts, wind direction and speed and how they will change and evolve over the coming few days.
A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: "A slightly slacker pressure pattern will allow marginally cloudier, cooler and more showery weather to end the week, but temperatures remain in the mid to high 20s widely and staying dry and sunny for most.
A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: "A blocking pressure pattern centred over or near to the British Isles has brought settled and dry weather."
Through these devices doctors gain a better understanding of a patient's blood pressure pattern and manage it appropriately, increasing the chance of controlling blood pressure and reducing the risks of complications such as strokes and heart attacks.

We have found that global warming increased the odds of the pressure pattern that contributed to the 2010 Russian heat wave that killed more than 50,000 people.
If the STR (flow strength) and the absolute value of VORT (total vorticity) are lower than 3, a pressure pattern is unclassified (U).
In the case of Hurricane Harvey, these include the warm ocean that provided energy for the storm; the elevated sea level on top of which the storm surge occurred; the atmospheric pressure pattern that contributed to the storm's stalling over the coast; and the atmospheric water vapour that provided moisture for the record-setting precipitation.
On the other hand, when the operator can look at a graph of pressure versus time, the trend of the pressure pattern becomes immediately obvious.
"For example, we found that the atmospheric pressure pattern that occurred over Russia during the 2010 heat wave has become more likely in recent decades, and that global warming has contributed to those odds," said co-author Daniel Horton, an assistant professor at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and a former postdoc in Diffenbaugh's lab who has led research on the influence of atmospheric pressure patterns on surface temperature extremes.
