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.

  • Displays Metric or Imperial units depending on your region settings

  • Intuitive Interface
