In Leeds, the barometric pressure tends to vary throughout the year. During the winter months, the pressure tends to be higher, indicating cooler weather, while in the summer, it tends to be lower, suggesting warmer temperatures. This fluctuation in pressure is often associated with the changing seasons.
The landscape around Leeds, with its hills and valleys, can have an impact on the atmospheric pressure. When air moves over the hills, it tends to compress, leading to higher pressure. In contrast, as air descends into the valleys, it expands, causing lower pressure. This topographical effect can create localized variations in the barometric pressure across the area.
