If you want to try your hand at predicting changes in the weather using nothing more than the air pressure around you, a free app simply called Weather Barometer may be worth a look. Compatible with Windows 10 Mobile phone sporting a barometric sensor — such as the Lumia 950, 950 XL and HP Elite x3 — Weather Barometer works by letting you keep track of current air pressure as well as trends.

Weather Barometer helps you predict storms with just your phone

Here's a quick look at the features of the app:

  • Suggested weather forecast based on pressure and pressure trend
  • Displays Metric or Imperial units depending on your region settings
  • Elevation correction for station pressure to mean sea level pressure
  • Intuitive Interface
  • Doesn't require an internet connection
  • Works with Continuum

It's a rather simple app, but one that could definitely come in handy if you're looking for a near-term prediction of what the weather may do at any given moment.
