Forecast

 

Missoula's average barometric pressure is 30.12 inches of mercury. This is slightly lower than the national average. The pressure fluctuates throughout the year.

Barometric pressure

The city is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains. The Rocky Mountains are to the east and the Bitterroot Mountains are to the west. This unique landscape affects the atmospheric pressure.

The mountain ranges create a rain shadow effect. This means that air is forced to rise, cool, and condense, resulting in precipitation. As the air descends, it warms and dries, leading to lower pressure.

The valley's shape also traps cold air in the winter. This leads to a phenomenon called cold air pooling, which can cause pressure to drop even further.
