Decoding the weather - Tide Clocks and Barometers for boat owners.

Keep a weather eye on the Horizon. As every keen Boatie (or seafaring person) knows, keeping an eye on the weather is part of the basics when planning a trip out to sea or if you are already out enjoying the waves. It is important to know what the weather is doing with a barometer so you do not get caught out. Having a reliable Barometer showing you the correct barometric pressure will give you a good indication if the weather is going to turn for the worse.

What to look for?

If the pressure is high then you usually get settled weather and when the pressure is low you get unsettled weather.

How can I read the air pressure ahead of time?

A barometer is a weather instrument which measures changes in the barometric pressure in the air, this gives an indication of up and coming weather patterns that could affect your day at sea. They usually have a face which gives an indication of storm, rain, cloudy or fair using words or by icons depending on the model of barometer you use.
