Indoor Weather Centre comprising brass Barometer and brass combined Hygrometer/Thermometer. Both instruments are mounted on a mahogany finish plaque. Can be supplied with brass engraving plate if required for a presentation or wedding/anniversary gift.
The Barometer will measure the atmospheric pressure for the direct area where it is located. Upon receipt of your barometer you will need to set it initially to your local pressure (full instruction given).
Barometers read the pressure of the immediate location where placed. It will advise you of what weather to expect in the next 12 – 24 hours
How to ready your barometer: The gold pointer in the glass should be turned so that it rests directly above the black barometer pointer. The gold pointer acts as a marker enabling you to remember today’s pressure when you next look at your barometer. You can thus see whether the pressure is rising or falling and how significant a rise or fall in pressure has occurred. A rapid increase in pressure indicates a short period of good weather and a fast decrease indicates storms and strong winds approaching.
A slow, constant increase in pressure indicates a period of settled, dry, sunny weather, whereas a steady decrease indicates persistent bad weather.
If the pressure falls considerably below 1000 millibars, you can expect storms and strong winds.
These instruments measure the climate in your house. Thermometers measure the temperature and Hygrometers measure the humidity in the air. A comfortable room has a temperature range of 18-22C (64-72F) with a humidity reading of between 45 and 70%
