Barometric pressure

Atherton is situated on the Atherton Tableland. The tableland is a fertile plateau. It is surrounded by mountains to the east and south. These mountains block moisture-laden air from the Pacific Ocean.

The blocked air rises and cools, resulting in rainfall. The rain shadow effect reduces rainfall on the plateau. Atherton receives an average annual rainfall of 1600 millimeters.

The surrounding mountains also impact local wind patterns. They force winds to rise and cool, leading to cloud formation. This contributes to Atherton's high humidity and misty days.
