Barometric pressure in Stockholm varies throughout the year due to the changing seasons. During winter, the pressure tends to be higher, often resulting in clear and cold days. In contrast, summer brings lower pressure and more unsettled weather, with frequent showers and occasional thunderstorms.
The landscape around Stockholm, which is surrounded by water and dotted with islands, influences the atmospheric pressure. The sea acts as a temperature buffer, moderating extreme weather conditions. This can lead to more stable barometric pressure patterns, especially during the summer months when the water absorbs and releases heat, affecting the surrounding air pressure.
