As it pertains to meteorology, the variation of any parameter with respect to time, especially atmospheric pressure within the last three hours.
The barometric tendency (i.e., the change of barometric pressure in the last three hours) is shown on the right of the station plot on a synoptic chart or on the remarks section of a METAR (meteorological aeronautical radio code) observation. The illustration depicts the barometric tendency and its legend.
