upper-level anticyclone

(Also called upper-level high, upper anticyclone, upper high, high-level anticyclone, high aloft.) An anticyclonic circulation existing in the upper air.

This often refers to such anticyclones only when they are much more pronounced at upper levels than at and near the earth's surface.
