Caption: Gulf of Mexico hurricane, isobar diagram. The isobars (white lines) connect areas of equal pressure, and are used on meteorological maps to help predict future weather patterns. Here, an area of low pressure (L) is moving from the Atlantic and the Caribbean into the Gulf of Mexico. This weather pattern is seen when hurricanes form over the Atlantic and move westwards to North America.
