The Barometer reads the atmospheric pressure in the immediate area it is located. It indicates the weather conditions for the next 12/24 hours. Most useful for planning outdoor activities.
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.
Tidal clock in spun brass bulk head style range. An attractive and useful addition for any household lucky enough to be living near tidal the water! The clock will predict the average state of the tide.
The Thermometer/Hygrometer measures the climate in your home. Thermometers measure the temperature and Hygrometers measure the humidity in the air.
