However, its storms are similar to Jupiter's Great Red Spot as it rotates in an anti-cyclonic direction.
But like Jupiter's Great Red Spot, the dark vortices swirl in an anti-cyclonic direction and seem to dredge up material from deeper levels in the ice giant's atmosphere," NASA noted on its website.
Explaining the reason for the severe air quality levels, IMD scientist Kuldeep Singh told ANI, "Strong anti-cyclonic winds are flowing in a pattern from Rajasthan, then through western Uttar Pradesh, southern Haryana and finally to Delhi NCR.
Skymet Weather Services Pvt Ltd attributes it to "an anti-cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan which is bringing dry winds" from the desert area.

A strong anti-cyclonic circulation in the alto levels with its core situated over Western Zambia, created equally strong jet stream over Namibia blowing from west to east.
The winter peak normally occurs when temperatures are low and this often results from anti-cyclonic conditions that also mean very little wind.
There are occasionally other times when anti-cyclonic conditions leave the whole of the UK with no significant wind at all.
The average sea ice motion in the region for the period was anti-cyclonic at 20-25 cm * [s.sup.-1], acting to transport sea ice southward toward the lease areas.
Therefore, wind turbines will not replace a single fossil fuel power station because anti-cyclonic periods are regular events in the UK.
Indeed, due to the thermal structure of the water body, an anti-cyclonic gyre was dominating the flow field in the upper layers (Fig.
Atmospheric pressure variations not only depend on geographical location and its local environment, but also on the frequency of cyclonic and anti-cyclonic formations of the atmospheric circulation.
