**What altitude is 850 millibars?**

5,000 feet

This pressure level is near an elevation of 5,000 feet though it ranges from 3,800 feet (1,170 meters) to 5,200 feet (1,590 meters).

### What altitude is 500mb?

approximately 5,500 meters

The 500 mb chart represents weather conditions in the mid- troposphere, at a level where approximately half the mass of the atmosphere lies below this level. This level is at an altitude of approximately 5,500 meters (18.000 ft).

**What altitude is 700 MB?**

10,000 feet

An air pressure of 700 millibars is commonly said to occur near 10,000 feet (3,100 meters) in elevation. But the height typically ranges from near 7,700 to 10,500 feet (2,350 to 3,150 meters).

#### What altitude is the 500 mb pressure reading found?

If meteorologists could only look at one chart, the 500 mb level chart would, by far, be the top choice. Ranging in elevation from 16,000 feet (4,980 meters) to nearly 20,000 feet (6,000 meters) this is considered the “middle” of the atmosphere.

#### Where is 850 MB in the atmosphere?

lower troposphere

The 850 mb chart, representing weather conditions in the lower troposphere, is at a level that is above approximately 15 percent of the atmosphere in terms of mass.

**Why the 500mb chart is best for weather forecasting?**

The 500mb forecast chart is an excellent tool for mariners to estimate where to anticipate the heaviest sea and swell conditions as well as a guide to the expected surface storm tracks and intensities.

## What does 500mb height mean?

The 500 mb height tells you about the average air temperature in the vertical column of air between the ground surface and where the measured air pressure is 500 mb, which is 4.6 – 6.0 km (2.9 – 3.8 miles) above sea level.

## What height is 500mb?

The height of the 500 mb surface is 5700 meters above sea level for all points along the line.

**What temperature is 850mb?**

When you bring down a parcel from 850 mb to the ground, you get a surface temperature of 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit).

### What altitude is 300mb?

30,000 feet

An air pressure of 300 millibars is said to occur near 30,000 feet (9,100 meters) in elevation. But the height ranges from near 27,000 to 32,000 feet (8,200 to 9,600 meters).

### Why the 500 mb chart is best for weather forecasting?

The 500 mb height actually tells you about the average air temperature in the vertical column of air between the ground surface and 4.6 – 6.0 km (2.9 – 3.8 miles) above sea level. Often this provides a good estimate of how warm or cold the air temperature is near the ground where we live.
