Pressure exerted by the weight of air in the atmosphere of Earth/measured in atms
Warm phase of ENSO/Warm water in Pacific/high air pressure/overall above average precipitation and temperature
Fast flowing, narrow air currents found in the upper atmosphere or in troposphere of some planets/major ones are west to east on Earth
