From 1st Feb 1894 they start recording Aneroid barometer readings as well as the normal (presumably mercurial one) but not on every line. No mention in the remarks about why they are doing this. I've been putting the aneroid ones in as an extra WR, hope that's correct.

Part way through May 29th 1894 they start to just use the aneroid - 'The mecurial barometer being reviewed'
