Cities with most and least barometric pressure change or variability?

Asked by ShaChris23 (304 points ) July 15th, 2012

Is there a world map or statistics that show which cities in the world have least and most barometric pressure change throughout the year? In other words, where can I find out about places that have more or less variability in air pressure change from day to day, and throughout the year?

In a given location, we tend to hear more about its climate or humidity. For example, Arizona is relatively low humidity all year long (low variability); I can check weather.com and see extreme temperature swing in one given day (morning vs night) AND in a given year (summer vs winter). Is there a website similar to weather.com but for air pressure?

Least change in the U.S. is Honolulu Hawaii and in the continental U.S. is San Diego. The most is St. Paul Alaska and in the continental U.S. Charleston South Carolina.

Charleston was a surprising answer. Interesting.

@marinelife Thank you marinelife.

aw.. nobody else coming to rescue? I guess the topic is of limited relevance or benefit..

@ShaChris23 No, it can be very relevant. For example, the air exchange rate on Whidbey Island WA is among the highest in the U.S. That makes it a very good place for people with chronic fatigue syndrome to live. They are far less symptomatic there.

@marinelife Definitely! Just the other the day air pressure in my local area changed drastically, and I felt really drained. I was just wishing that there is a website with air pressure statistics & forecast! I guess not.
