Cathy  I believe that the Floods in Queensland will make a huge difference to the World not only Oz. The effects haven't started to bite yet but they will.Please keep posting.

Should have put 29 yesterday - it is 29.5 today. I don't know what it is, it has a finger on like a clock. It is a small wall mounted one I got when I retired.

That makes sense Moh. Mines on 29.5" as well. The figure refers to the length of a column of mercury atmospheric pressure will support if the top of the column is in a vacuum. Goes back to the days when all barmeters were mercury coumns. The modern ones (aneroid barometers) hafe a different machanism that doesn't use mercury but a small enclosed metal bellows that alters shape as pressure varies. The impoirtant thing isn't the actual reading but how it changes day to day so it doesn't matter if it's not excatly accurate.

Dry frost again this morning. We'll be walking before 08:00. The days are lengthening!

I have two aneroid barometers that both display within 0.2" of each other. One is a small plinth mounted table version made in the 1940's which I used for tropospheric predictions for my Amateur Radio station. The other is a more modern wall mounted job but more or less the same size. For best accuracy, aneroid barometers should be calibrated to known atmospheric pressure at sea level. Maybe we should send all ours off to Gloria (nearer the sea than Barlick) for tweaking!

I have a barometer can i join the "my barometer's better than yours" club...never look at mine, don't fiddle with it or tap it, I go online and read what the met office says, it's easier.

of course you can Belle. Does the met office have a station in your garden or are you relying on measurements from afar? It can make a vast difference. I know that Skipton weather is measured at Bingley which is miles away up th'aire valley. I look at my two barometers on a daily basis (I only ever tap one on a regular basis though), make my prediction in my head, it makes no difference anyway the weather always pleases itself  and always will. I find looking out of the window one of the most reliable methods for local predictionWink

Mine has gone up slightly to nearer 30.  It is blooming cold today but at least it is fine.

I think Belle can get by without a weather station in her garden, if she looks out of the Window she can see if it Wind, Rain, or Shine !!!

I didn't realise that when she said she goes on line it was the washing line she was referring to Wink

We all have our own ways of forecasting weather and having worked outside all my life I have developed a pretty good instinct for it. Ian is right, look at the weather and try to see the pattern. No such thing as my barometer is better thgan yours. All are slightly inaccurate and only tell local atmospheric pressure. It's the movement in readings on the same instrument that gives the clues. Mine's reading 29.6 this morning and that means high pressure is holding so prospect is clear sky, frost and another good walking day. Taking the mickey out of Belle is neither hepful or polite.
