Air pressure measurements
I need air pressure measurements. Can you find the barometric measurements in a specific city on this website? if you could, could you find past measurements?
- Hi Ruby:
Stuffintheair.com contains links to a variety of government websites where current, and probably past, weather observations, including pressure, are presented. This is instead of reporting those values directly.
Major US weather reporting websites include:
Good Long term precipitation forecasts - Dryday
Really Cool one - Weather Underground
Even more cool - Weatherspark
Of these, NWS is most likely to offer archive data and air
pressure measurements for you. I know how to get it on the Canadian federal website (because that's where I live), but have never looked for it in the States.
More detail on websites where you can find current and historical atmospheric pressure measurements:
- National Weather Service (NWS):
The NWS website (weather.gov) provides weather information for various locations throughout the country, including current and historical atmospheric pressure readings. To access the data, you can search for a specific city or region.
- Weather Underground:
Weather Underground (wunderground.com) provides a wealth of weather information, including barometric pressure measurements. It is possible to search for a specific city or use the interactive map to find the desired location and view the pressure data.
- World Weather Online
(worldweatheronline.com) provides current and historical weather data for cities around the world. The barometric pressure readings for a particular city can be accessed by searching for that city.
- The Weather Channel's Weather.com is a popular online weather resource. Various cities and regions are provided with current weather conditions, including atmospheric pressure. To find the information you are seeking, you can search for a specific location.
Weather Network website, follow these general steps:
1- Go to theweathernetwork.com and click on "Weather" or type in the city name.
2- After you've selected the city, you'll typically see the current weather. Find a tab or option that lets you view historical weather data. You might see "Past 24 Hours," "Historical Data," etc.
3- In the historical data section, you can select a specific date or range of dates for which you want to retrieve barometric pressure data. You can search by days, weeks, months, or years on the interface.
4- When you select a date range, the website should display a summary or detailed view of historical weather data, including barometric pressure readings for each day.
The exact steps and terminology may vary on The Weather Network website. I recommend checking out the site and its features, or checking out their help/documentation section if you need help finding specific historical barometric pressure data.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in the United States provides a weather map that is particularly useful for viewing recent isobars.
A map on the NWS website shows isobar lines, which represent areas with equal atmospheric pressure. This allows you to quickly and easy compare pressures for nearby cities. Follow these steps to access the NWS weather map with isobars:
- Weather.gov is the website of the National Weather Service.
- There should be a search bar or a map on the homepage. Enter your desired location in the search bar or go straight to the map.
- On the map, look for an option to display "Surface Observations" or "Surface Analysis." This usually lets you see isobars.
- If you want to see atmospheric pressure lines, enable the "isobars" layer. You'll see the latest isobars for the chosen region on the map.
The NWS website may have slightly different locations and terminology. Explore the site's features or check out the help/documentation section for more info.
Data availability and depth may vary depending on the location and website you select. To locate the desired barometric pressure measurements for your city of interest, we recommend exploring these resources and navigating their interfaces.Search
