A wake low, or wake depression, is a mesoscale low-pressure area which trails the mesoscale high following a squall line. Due to the subsiding warm air associated with the systems formation, clearing skies are associated with the wake low.All I know is that we had really bad weather today. It thundered, lightninged I think (I didn't get to see any since we were indoors) and we had tons of rain and wind.
