High pressure and low pressure systems vary in strength.

Erica's Answer:

A strong low pressure system can squash a relatively weaker high, and as you observed, a strong area of high pressure can help to kick an area of low pressure out of our area and off the coast. There's no way to quantify either high pressure or low pressure as being stronger. However, we can note that high pressure areas bring sunshine and dry weather, whereas low pressure brings clouds and precipitation.
