The variation in atmospheric pressure reading gives an early indication of the weather that may be encountered depending upon the fact that whether the pressure is rising or falling. For eg rapidly falling pressure reading may indicate formation of low pressure area nearby the vessel and that tough weather is likely to be experienced. Hence, atmospheric pressure readings are quite useful in predicting the weather pattern vessel may encounter.
