In Sarajevo, the barometric pressure can vary throughout the year. During the summer months, it is generally higher, around 1013 millibars, while in winter, it tends to be lower, averaging around 1005 millibars. These fluctuations are due to the changing seasons.
The landscape surrounding Sarajevo, nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains, plays a role in the atmospheric pressure. The mountainous terrain can create a phenomenon called "temperature inversion," where cold air gets trapped in the valley, causing the pressure to decrease. This effect is more prominent in winter when temperature inversions are more frequent, leading to lower barometric pressure.
