Barometric pressure

Palmerston North is located in a valley. The Manawatu River runs through the city. The surrounding landscape is flat and low-lying.

This valley location affects the atmospheric pressure. Cold air settles in the valley at night. This causes the pressure to rise. In the morning, the pressure drops as the air warms up.

The nearby Tararua Ranges also impact the pressure. They create a rain shadow effect. Moist air from the Tasman Sea is blocked by the ranges. This leads to a drier climate in Palmerston North.
