Weather Instrument Weather Instrument

The need to determine the weather is of paramount importance to everyone.

Accordingly, there are thermometers which measure temperature; hygrometers which measure humidity; and barometers which record changes in air pressure. The latter is a reliable predictor of possible storms.

Instruments of each type are available singularly or grouped so that all three can be found in a single piece.

These instruments are designed for the desk, table, or wall and come in a pleasing variety of models to enhance any room. The weather instruments are mounted in wood or metal such as brass.

Weather Instrument Types

Thermometer

Thermometers measure air temperature. Because heat from the sun can adversely affect readings, place thermometers in a location protected from the sun. There are many types of thermometers, ranging from electronic digital thermometers to simple mercury-based ones.

Hygrometer

A hygrometer measures the amount of moisture in the air, known as humidity. Hygrometers are available in both digital versions and traditional analog versions.

Barometer

A barometer is used to measure air pressure. Changes in air pressure can precede a large storm. Barometers tend to fall if rainy weather is imminent and rise if the weather soon will clear.
