The graphs below show the pressure in Teddington for the past 24 hours and 7 days.

The barometric pressure data is derived from an on-line electronic pressure transducer. The measurement uncertainty of this on-line transducer is approximately 0.3 hPa. The unit hectopascal (hPa) is numerically identical to the millibar (mbar) Link to pressure units.

The pressure values shown are those at the point of measurement, that is approximately 10 metres above mean sea level. If a hole were dug to sea level, the pressure at the bottom would be about 1 hPa greater than at the top. Note that, when estimating a pressure value from the graphs, the uncertainty will be considerably higher than that of the measuring transducer because of limitations in screen resolution.

When using the pressure values, particularly for checking another barometer, it is important to appreciate that the differences in altitude, distance from Teddington and weather conditions may seriously limit the validity of the comparison.

Proper calibration of barometers can only be accomplished by direct pneumatic connection to an appropriate pressure standard and adherence to well defined procedures.
