Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, experiences varying barometric pressure throughout the year. In winter, the barometric pressure tends to be higher, while in summer, it is lower. This change in pressure is due to the seasonal differences in temperature, with colder air in winter being denser and exerting more pressure.
The landscape surrounding Yerevan has a significant impact on its atmospheric pressure. The city is situated in a valley at the foot of Mount Ararat, surrounded by mountains. These geographical features can create a microclimate, where air gets trapped and compressed, leading to higher barometric pressure. Additionally, the mountains can act as a barrier, influencing wind patterns and affecting the local weather conditions.
