Une dépression

Dictionaries give two different meanings for "dépression" in the weather context - either low pressure system or heavy rains.  Low pressure leads to rainstorms, but which is meant in this excercise?

Hi Sean,

There are international norms for such expressions and I always took it as meaning as  a low-pressure system, but this is not my field.

Take a look at the following Wiki page which I found with lots of interesting weather vocabulary that might interest you -

Bonne Continuation!
