In Buffalo, the barometric pressure varies throughout the year, contributing to its distinct seasons. During the colder months, the barometric pressure tends to be higher, indicating stable weather conditions. In contrast, the warmer months bring lower barometric pressure, leading to more unsettled and changeable weather patterns.
Buffalo's location near Lake Erie and its proximity to the Appalachian Mountains greatly influence its atmospheric pressure. The interaction between the lake, mountains, and prevailing winds can create dramatic shifts in the barometric pressure. For example, lake-effect snowstorms occur when cold air passes over the warmer waters of Lake Erie, causing an increase in humidity and a drop in barometric pressure, leading to heavy snowfall in the region.
