Qnh 1041

That was the pressure round my way earlier today and I can't remember it being that high.

Is it remarkably high, or is it amnesia?

Went for a bimble this morning and had to do some winding on the altimeter as the QNH was 980 last time I flew. Just out of interest I checked how far the scale went on the altimeter and it stops at 1045, so I guess you could say it was pretty high. Stansted were giving a QNH of 1041 by the way.

1048 down my way the other day. What is even more remarkable is that in this part of planet earth, QNH is rarely over 995hpa.

I have seen 1042 back home in Melbourne.

Some met reports from around the uk at 23:30 showing high pressure :

CARDIFF EGFF 122320Z 04007KT 9999 BKN033 05/02 Q1041
BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL EGBB 122320Z 36005KT 9999 OVC030 05/03 Q1042

and this from the BBC weather website

"The highest sea level pressure figures recorded in the world are generally from Siberia. A figure of 1075.2 millibars (31.75 inches of mercury) was recorded on 14 January, 1893 at Irkutsk, Siberia. The highest recorded air pressure, adjusted to sea-level, was 1083.8 millibars (32 inches of mercury) at Agata, Siberia, on 31 December 1968."

QNH1044 at BFS at the moment. Don't remember hearing it above 1037 before.

How about the lowest?

GLA hit 1045 this afternoon, the highest I can remember in about 9 years: I've flown out of the same airfield with 967 and 1037 only a week apart...
