How does atmospheric pressure affect the weather?



  1. 0 Votes

    Atmospheric pressure measures the amount of weight the atmosphere is bearing down in the earth.  High and low pressure systems tend to lead to the creation of different types of weather systems.  For example, a low pressure system is characteristic of warm temperatures, wind, and rain due to the limited area a weather system has.  In low pressure systems, weather elements are forced to mix which often creates volatile conditions.  Conversely, a high pressure generally brings clear skies and cooler temperatures.
