On this date in 1922 high pressure areas that move across this region in the depths of winter are stronger than at any other times of the year.
High pressure areas are usually caused by air masses being cooled, either from below or from above as infrared cooling of winter air masses over land exceeds the warming of those airmasses by sunlight.
