How does low pressure and high pressure affect the weather?

It is well established that high pressure is generally associated with nice weather, while low pressure is generally associated with cloudy, rainy, or snowy weather. The motion of air in the atmosphere above our heads plays a large part in the weather we experience here at earth's surface.

Besides, why is low pressure associated with bad weather?

Basically, air cools as it rises, which can cause water vapor in the air to condense into liquid water droplets, sometimes forming clouds and precipitation. The answer has to do with the typical air flow around high and low pressure.

Which side of the low pressure center would the winds be the strongest?

On the front (eastern) side of a low, winds are generally from the south and this typically results in warmer temperatures. Forecast Tip: If a city is expected to be located west of a low pressure center then colder temperatures are likely.
