Barometric Pressure Today
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 come from a combination of the Tomorrow and Dark Sky weather APIs. The map view is from Windy.com. If the data in your area are inaccurate or unavailable, that’s probably an issue with a data source, but please let us know by leaving a feedback message (at the bottom of the page) so we can check on it!
Is there a mobile app?
There is not a mobile app version at the moment, but it is quite easy to save this page as a bookmark in your device’s home screen and access it like any other app you download. Click on the links below for instructions:
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.
How can I support the maintenance and further development of this app?
Great question. The best way to support us is to share your feedback. Tell us what you like, dislike, and would like to see in the future!
But I don't want to give feedback. Can I just pay you?
Yes. It costs a fraction of a penny to retrieve data every time a visitor loads weather data, but it certainly adds up. Then operating the server costs a few dollars each month as well.
