Cyclone ( )

A cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of
low atmospheric pressure.
They are usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that
rotate counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in
the Southern Hemisphere. All large-scale cyclones are centered on lowpressure areas.

A low-pressure area, low or depression, is a region where the

atmospheric pressure is lower than that of surrounding locations. Lowpressure systems form under areas of wind divergence that occur in the
upper levels of the troposphere. The formation process of a low-pressure
area is known as cyclogenesis.
