The article by the capital weather gang, contains a good explanation with visuals of Rossby waves

Note the stationary nature of the highs (red) and lows (blue) over an eight-day period. Depending on where you live and what type of pressure system sits overhead, you’re stuck with the same type of weather day after day. This might create issues after a few days of persistent rain or unrelenting heat.

On the other hand it might create excellent weather for the upcoming week. It depends on which side of the wave one is located. The point is weather systems have a greater tendency to become trapped under the new dynamics.
