The barometric pressure in Kingston, Jamaica is generally stable throughout the year, ranging from 29.90 to 30.10 inches of mercury (inHg). The city experiences two main seasons: the wet season from May to November and the dry season from December to April. During the wet season, the barometric pressure tends to be slightly lower due to the influence of tropical systems and increased moisture in the air. In contrast, the dry season usually sees higher barometric pressure values, accompanied by more stable weather conditions.
The landscape around Kingston has a notable impact on the atmospheric pressure. The city is located on the southeastern coast of the island, with the majestic Blue Mountains to the north. These mountains contribute to a local thermal circulation system, where cool air descends from higher altitudes, leading to relatively higher barometric pressure in the area. The surrounding Caribbean Sea also influences the pressure patterns, as sea breezes and trade winds interact with the land, creating fluctuations but generally keeping the pressure within a consistent range.
