Abstract

BETWEEN June 7 and 12 an anticyclone, with maximum pressure of 30˙20 to 30˙30 inches, passed slowly from the northwest across southern New England. The isobars formed well defined ovals, with their longer axes running from south-west to north-east. It was difficult to locate the centre of the anticyclone because the isobars were broken on the side toward the ocean; but, by drawing a line through the stations showing the maximum pressure, the crest or ridge of the anticyclone could be easily located up to the 11th, after which it passed off the coast and its position became somewhat uncertain, although the pressure continued above normal over southern New England until the night of the 12th.
