Regions of low pressure and low heights are often thought of as having strong horizontal winds. This is not the case in the center of the low. Look for low pressure systems that have at least one closed contour around them at link below. Often the wind speed is 10 knots or less at the center of the low's rotation.
Think of being on a merry-go-round. If you are on the outside of the merry-go-round you will be moving at the highest rate of speed while if you are near the center of the merry-go-round you will have a much slower rate of speed. You can also think of a hurricane in which winds are light in the eye and stronger outside the eye.
