I'm using Geoff's Climate Cookbook to try and make the climate of my world, but I'm really struggling and I don't understand much. I've put the high and low pressure zones down on my map, but I feel like I might be doing it wrong. My world is identical to Earth, just with different continents.

This is for January enter image description here

and this is for July enter image description here

Orange is high pressure, blue is low pressure, and the lines in the landmasses are supposed to be mountains.

Am I doing it right? If not, how do I fix it? And any advice for what I have to do after this would be really appreciated.

  • It cannot be that an area has no pressure. The threshold between the high and low might be arbitrary, but where the high ends, the low must start. Look at an isobar map for a reference enter image description here
  • It's implausible that high and low pressure regions accurately maps to the landmasses. Look at a satellite image or again at an isobar map: the cyclonic areas span over landmasses and oceans.
  • It's equally implausible that there is a precise, general and worldwide switch between high and low pressure areas going from January to July.
