"perhaps more than any other single measurement, atmospheric pressure is the best indicator of current and changing weather conditions." explain and discuss thy this statement is correct. provide some examples (hint: discuss the difference in high and low pressure systems. how does each affect the local and regional weather? how is air affected by air pressure?)
