Investigating Weather In order to make predictions, meteorologists use instruments to record information about the weather. These are some of the instruments they use. Thermometer A thermometer is used to measure air temperature. Anemometer An anemometer measures wind speed in either kilometres per hour or miles per hour. Wind Vane A wind vane shows the direction in which the wind is blowing. Barometer A barometer is used to measure air pressure–the weight of the air pushing down on Earth’s surface. aneroid barometer mercury barometer RAIN FAIR 29 30 31 28 INS Hg 1000 1010 10 20 10 30 10 40 105 0 9 70 98 0 990 9 6 0 95 0 940 930 Mb s aneroid barometer 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 10 0 % Hygrometer N S E W 20 MPH mercury atmospheric pressure vacuum 760 mm (29.92 in.)
