Barometer Correction

By: bputney, 5:43 PM GMT on March 10, 2013

I just found out a day ago that my station has been reporting the raw barometer readings. Turns out almost everyone references to sea level pressure.

I added an altitude correction offset of 0.280in-hg to station raw barometer at 9:15AM PST 03-08-2013.

From now on the station will be reporting sea level corrected pressure. If you are using data before the date of the correction you should manually correct the values by the amount given above.
