Feeling under pressure? Maybe it is not an increase in stress but instead a shift in atmospheric pressure. Oncoming storms or fronts lower air pressure. In fact, measuring fluctuations in atmospheric pressure was one of the earliest means of forecasting the weather. As pressure begins to drop, clouds and rain are likely on the horizon.
Weather changes can affect health, schedules, and even big–ticket purchasing decisions, according to one report. Yet, even if you are not a meteorologist, you can get a read on air pressure and other environmental conditions. You can reference The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which boasts an 80% accuracy rate on forecasts. You can also use a few popular tools that deliver scientific measurements, such as our barometers or weather meters.
Oakton® Temperature Compensated Barometer measures atmospheric pressure in millibar (mbar) and inches Hg or millibar and mm Hg. Wall-mount.
Cole-Parmer Barometer with Digital Thermometer in a compact design with a built-in clock as well as temperature and barometric pressure readings. Graphically displays barometric trends.
