Short summary
A possible link between solar activity and the atmospheric pressure fields is investigated using NCEP/NCAR data at ground level and at 500hPa, in the Northern Hemisphere for the cold season, with a focus on the North Atlantic centres of action. The Icelandic low seems to be most sensitive to the solar signal by moving towards north and by confining its activity area during months with high solar activity.
