28.38 (hope I got that decimal right) here and rain and wind have ramped up.  Hah!  I found the light that will go on when the power goes out.  That's a good thing.

According to Cliff Mass the lowest pressure was right around 980 millibars = 28.94 inches. Should be somewhat higher by now.

I don't think it got quite that low here.

It has now turned around and is reading 29.50

The barometer is reading 29.15 and still falling.

I may have to check the high tide this morning.  It should be way up there.

My dial face barometer has hit 28.  It has no numbers below that.

Yes.  It has been close in the past.  It I have an Oregon Scientific digital one going too, and I wonder if it has lower readings.  The breeze is blowing too, and I better get out and go for a walk.
