    Hello,

    I am sorry for this basic question, but is there a a conversion from hpa to mb? My novice little weather station measures in hpa and I think that most people refer to pressure in mb.

    Thank you in advance

    Aunt Sally

    Hi Aunt Sally,

    As far as I know they are both the same. So no need to worry.

    Here's an article that might help Auntie :o

    Key quote would have to be:

    1 mb = 1 hPa
