anticyclonic gloom

anticyclonic gloom A condition of low visibility associated with anticyclones and accompanied, in the colder months of the year, by well-developed temperature inversions that can trap dust and other pollutants and often have radiation fog in the lower layers. The stability of the high-pressure system can make the resultant reduced visibility very persistent and may establish smog conditions.
