Atmos Pressure record?

1055 might be the highest UK atmos pressure ever recorded if it reaches the UK.

Heading our way.

Oh well, no one's going out anyway.

Previous record was Jan 2020. Previous to that it was 300 years ago. Climate change???

Fezzi - what are the impications? What does this high pressure result in?

It forces you to the ground.

Or makes you weightless.

One of those.

<taps glass>



30.6 Brexit inches, here.

My vague understanding is that high pressure generally means good weather. Which doesn't sound too scarey, at least not in the UK at the moment.

Does tend to trap polluted air. Fortunate that we are on semi-furlough in the filth generating sector.

I'd conclude that there was more energy driving the weather machine.

Those wind-farms have a lot to answer for, messing around with our weather.

Verdigris - 29 Mar 2020 13:57:40 (#11 of 18)

An appreciable breeze, here, to keep my local windfarm turning, so my ramblings should be 100% green. Also, the count's louses in the village all have solar panels, so we may be a net exporter of renewable energy, at the moment.

Actually I was tuned in to air traffic control and they gave the QNH (pressure) as 1044. Thought..that is high.

KLM, Aer Lingus, BA and Ryanair mainly in the air at mo.

Higher sales of tinned pulses may see us through.

Grant's tinned haggis is good for the more carnivorous, although it seems to contain an unreasonable amount of suet.

We have been given all the weather in one day today. Apart from thunder and lightning, but there's still time yet.

Tylenol - 29 Mar 2020 17:49:04 (#17 of 18)

Weather hasn't really changed here in two weeks, cold calm and sunny.

tasselhoff - 29 Mar 2020 17:54:20 (#18 of 18)

It's been snowing here. We managed to get through the whole winter without any and now it's sticking.
