Falling rapidly? - Don't tap it!


The air pressure continues to fall rapidly at the SevenStones Lightship
People have a habit of tapping aneroid barometers - heard an old fisherman say once, "If it were meant to be tapped it it would have a hammer hanging next to it!"...



and now the wind has backed round slowly from the West over the last 24 hours to Sou'sou'easterly - the worst possible direction for Newlyn.
