In Victoria, Hong Kong, the barometric pressure experiences variations throughout the year. The city has a subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. During the summer, the barometric pressure tends to be lower, ranging between 29.8 and 30.1 inches of mercury (inHg). In contrast, during the winter months, the pressure increases, reaching around 30.1 to 30.4 inHg.
The landscape surrounding Victoria plays a role in the atmospheric pressure. With high-rise buildings and a dense urban environment, the city experiences a phenomenon called "urban heat island effect." This effect occurs when the city's concrete and asphalt absorb more heat during the day, causing warmer temperatures and lower pressure compared to the surrounding rural areas. Therefore, Victoria may have slightly different weather patterns and lower barometric pressure as a result of its unique landscape.
