Question:
What is the highest barometric pressure reading recorded at sea-level?



Replies:
This is an excellent question that I cannot answer well. It is very difficult to find records for maximum pressure, even in the National Climate Data Center records. Pressure is recorded in Mean Sea Level values. The highest that I have seen here in Northern Illinois been 30.44 inches.
