In high pressure systems, winds move in an anti-clockwise direction
and dry, relatively cloud free conditions can be expected. the air will sink down from the sky, causing it to warmup, usually creating stable weather conditions.
In low pressure systems,winds move in a clockwise direction. During a low pressure system, the warm air will rise up from the ground. As this air rises, it cools, usually creating clouds and possible rain and unsettled weather.
Most people are capable of looking outside and making a general assessment of weather conditions; for instance dark clouds mean it could rain with possible thunder and lightning. One way of using natural signs to predict weather is by assessing the types of clouds in the sky, as each can be associated with certain types of weather.
