The notes on the barometer face (RAIN, CHANGE etc) are broad indications and less important than the actual pressure change. Regular observation will quickly lead to a greaterunderstanding of weather patterns. Generally: -Increasing Pressure(movement of the needle in a clockwise direction) suggests improving weather, associated with a HIGH or "anti-cyclonic" pressure system. Decreasing Pressure(movement of the needle in an anti-clockwise direction) suggests deteriorating weather, associated with a LOW or "cyclonic" pressure system. Steady Pressure, typical of extended fine weather periods, suggests more of the same.To observe the trend, the movable pointer is turned so that it sits directly above the barometer needle. Later (perhaps 6 hours for an easily-identifiable change), the barometer glass is tapped gently and the direction of movement of the needle noted.
