The pressure in Beijing, China is predicted to drop over the next few hours, with an average pressure of 1014.3 hPa today, which is considered normal.
Weather prediction: Expect wet, unsettled weather and a strong breeze
The daily total fluctuation in pressure in Beijing is 6.2 hPa, with a low of 1011.5 hPa and a high of 1017.7 hPa. The daily average here is lower than in most cities around the world.
In Beijing, the barometric pressure tends to be higher during the winter and lower in the summer. This is because during the winter, cold air from Siberia moves southward, resulting in higher pressure. In the summer, warm air from the ocean flows northward, leading to lower pressure. These pressure changes contribute to the distinct seasons experienced in Beijing.
The landscape surrounding Beijing, with its mountains and hills, also affects atmospheric pressure. The presence of mountains like the Yanshan Range to the north and the Taihang Mountains to the west creates barriers that influence air movement. As air encounters these obstacles, it is forced to rise or sink, altering the pressure patterns and influencing the local weather conditions in Beijing.
