A barometer is an instrument used to measure atmospheric

pressure. It can measure the pressure exerted by the atmosphere by

using water, air, or mercury. Pressure tendency can forecast short

term changes in the weather. Numerous measurements of air pressure

are used within surface weather analysis to help find surface

troughs, high pressure systems, and frontal boundaries.
