Which is more accurate Reading Station pressure or adjusted pressure I noticed that when I look at a local station from the NOAA it's quite a big difference between what I have here in my display and what they show

Hello Ed,

Station pressure is raw unadjusted pressure.  This does not take your altitude into consideration when providing a reading.  Adjusted pressure will use the address information entered to adjust the pressure readings to your location.  Adjusted pressure is typically more accurate for your location. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.
