Barometric pressure, often referred to as atmospheric pressure, is a very unstable value affected by weather systems, seasonal changes and diurnal shifts.  It is never a Static Value.  The resulting shift in daily barometric values can be in excess of the equivalent of 30cm or 12” of water. If you are monitoring water levels over […]
