In Seoul, South Korea, the barometric pressure varies throughout the year. It tends to be higher in the colder seasons, such as winter and early spring, ranging between 1,020 to 1,030 millibars. During the warmer months, like summer and early fall, the pressure generally decreases to around 1,010 to 1,020 millibars. These pressure changes are influenced by the shifting weather patterns and systems that occur with each season.
The atmospheric pressure in Seoul is also influenced by its unique geographical features. The city is surrounded by mountains, including the Bukhan Mountain Range to the north. These mountains act as barriers for air flow, causing the air to compress and increase the pressure. Additionally, Seoul is located inland, away from the coastal areas. This lack of nearby water bodies restricts the influence of maritime air masses, which also affects the atmospheric pressure.
