Global warming is sketching the isobars on weather maps in a different way, owing to new patterns and their climatic imprint. Climatological reports have shown that atmospheric pressure fluctuations in the past five decades has strong affiliations with human stimulus. Any infinitesimal change in air pressure could produce a dramatic climatic effect, such as wind, precipitation, diurnal perturbations and storms. Pressure in air is the pointing device for atmosphere's circulation, and consequently, determines how humidity circulates. Progressive studies on air pressure from both experimental and theoretical sources have corroborated with each other. The potential for atmospheric pressure is a function of the individual sum of oxygen, carbondioxide, water vapor, nitrogen, and noble gases in air. Although, it is difficult to predict the life span of these atmospheric gases, we cannot assume that the abundance of either of these gases has remained constant over geologic time. This study focuses on analyzing weather changes in Ikogosi SW Nigerian, in conjunction with pressure for almost four decades, using curve fitting regression analysis and statistical methods relative to direct plots. The result reveals exponential trends of growth in pressure-temperature measurement indicative of weather change. In view of this, recommendations are given based on indices of measurement shown by occurrence and the force of atmospheric pressure.
