I use this one occasionally

But of little use to you matey, as its based in Worcester, handy for the Severn predictions and also logging red letter days. Can also see rainfall which of course equates into rise / fall of river as well.

Here is one for Weymouth.


One that covers the UK would be handy.

Why not buy your own barometer? You should be able to pick one up in a second-hand shop. The mercury ones are approaching becoming illegal bacause of the mercury contained in them, and as people worry about such things, the value of these will probably drop. They are, however difficult to set up and best left to specialists. The other type is the aneroid barometer, which looks like a wooden-cased clock. Try auction sites, local auctioneers, S/H shops, etc., check it works by putting in a clear plastic bag, and blowing into the bag while watching the indicator.

You can buy 'weather stations' quite cheaply in the likes of Tscibo, Aldi, etc. etc. and they will be accurate enough for your needs. You just have to remember to read the dial before or after you have been fishing and record it on your fishing log to see if it makes any difference to the fishing quality. (I am assuming you are not travelling miles from your home base of course).

Another alternative for the boat anglers maybe to listen to the Shipping Forecast - Radio 4??

If you check the bbc.co.uk/weather site for your area, you will find barometric pressure in one of the columns. So you get the weather and pressure simultaneously! You can also check local tides under 'coast' or something on the same page via a click-through.

Hi,

Try this site -

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/uk_forecast_weather.html

Follow the links to your area, and then over on the left there will be a link to the nearest observation site. Click on this and you can get almost live pressure readings, plus 6 & 24-hour histories.

If you do buy a barometer, the best time to calibrate it (to match your local area) is when the is a large area of high pressure over your region. These are usually slow moving, and the pressure change as it moves is small (look for the contours on the map being spaced well apart).
