  • Cold wind from poles move towards equator and warm winds vice versa

  • Distort the path of the jet stream travelling in a straight line

  • Cause them to move in a wave like pattern or meander at various intervals

  • Also due to intervening ridges on landforms like mountain, plateaus etc.

  • Wavy pattern of the jet stream is known as Rossby waves.

  • Some points in warmer latitudes below polar region get some cold pockets cause extremities in local temperature.

  • Rossby waves create areas of high pressure (at ridges) and low pressure (at troughs).

  • When a high pressure is surrounded by low- creates anticyclones and cyclones.
