In Toronto, Canada, the barometric pressure fluctuates throughout the year. During the summer and spring seasons, the barometric pressure tends to be lower, ranging around 1000-1010 millibars. On the other hand, during fall and winter, the barometric pressure increases, reaching levels of 1015-1030 millibars. These pressure changes are influenced by weather patterns and the movement of air masses in the region.
The landscape around Toronto affects the atmospheric pressure in several ways. The city is situated near Lake Ontario, which has a moderating effect on the weather. The lake's temperature impacts the air masses passing over it, causing them to either warm up or cool down. Additionally, the city's proximity to the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River can result in the formation of lake-effect snowstorms, which can lead to sudden drops in atmospheric pressure.
