Barometers - Shop


A selection of weather instruments from radio controlled battery forcasters to  a traditional glass Galileo thermometer harking back to the 17th century, with a few aneroid banjo barometers as well.

Radio controlled weather forcasters work out the average of how fast (or slow) the barometric pressure is changing up or down and from this works out what the weather is likely to do in the next 12 to 24 hours. As anyone who has watched a weather forcast will know, this is not an exact science, but gives a pretty good prediction.

Aneroid Barometers will tell you what the current barometric pressure is and you can read from the dial what the current weather is likely to be. This again is not an exact science as it is perfectly possible to have high pressure (normally dry and sunny) but have a torrential thunderstorm.

A Galileo thermometer is a for reading the temperature only. Depending on whether the glass spheres float or sink, the temperature can be read from the brass tags hanging from each sphere.
