bubble high

(Or, simply, bubble.) A small high, complete with anticyclonic circulation, of the order of 80 to 480 km (50 to 300 miles) across, often induced by precipitation and vertical motions associated with thunderstorms.

These transitory small highs are relatively cold and are sometimes located behind convective outflow boundaries.
