Barometric Pressure App
What is this?
This is the only web application dedicated to showing barometric pressure histories, forecasts and maps for any location in the world.
Who is this for?
Humans: Barometric pressure fluctuations can lead to migraine headaches, joint pain, arthritis symptoms, and blood pressure changes among other physical changes in the human body. Some people can predict weather patterns due to their bodies’ responses to changes in pressure. It can help to know in advance when the pressure will change in order to make lifestyle or medication adjustments beforehand, which is where this forecast graph can be helpful!
Meteorologists: Barometric pressure, also known as atmospheric pressure, is a leading indicator for inclement weather. Generally, low pressure systems are associated with cooler temperatures, precipitation, wind and storms.
Fishermen: Some fish respond to changes in barometric pressure and can change their level of feeding activity when pressure is dropping. Thus, fishermen might avoid fishing when pressure is dropping and seek out times to fish before or after those periods.
Where does this data come from?
The weather data comes from the Apple WeatherKit weather data API. The map view is from Windy.com.

The app is not working for me. What should I do?
We apologize for that. We are running this app on a shoestring budget while we’re trying to get it off the ground, so sometimes we hit our allotted data limits with our data providers. Check back again after some time and it should work. Either way, please leave us some feedback so we can help if you are experiencing problems by clicking on the “Feedback” link, below.
