Pressure’s fallin’, (freezin’) rain’s a-comin’

December 20, 2011 @ 15:43 By: gordon Category: Weather

I’ve been dragging myself around today, but I was attributing that to a long day yesterday and not enough sleep. A couple of hours ago I started to feel “out of sorts”, so I checked the Weather Office’s website and sure enough, the air pressure was climbing most of the last day and then dropping fairly steadily since mid-morning.

Given the forecast for the next twenty-four hours, which can be summarized as icky¹, it’s not surprising that the pressure’s dropping.
