Role of Pressure Tendencies in Forecasting Rainfall

Change of pressure at a place is a direct result of convergence with associated vertical transport fair and advection of air at that place. Pressure changes due to advection alone would be large and could not account for the pressure tendencies ordinalily noticed. If the pressure changes of order ordinarily noticed are due to convergence, then a direct confirmation of the same may be obtained by a study of pressure tendencies in the field of monsoon depression, the rainfall in which issupposed
