What's 'the weight of somebody's presence' mean? I read a novel today, and saw this expression. The original sentence is 'Savannah was at the table, talking with her mom while her dad read the paper, and I felt the weight of their presence when I entered.' Does it mean the atmosphere is pretty good? Pls help, thanks in advance.

It would mean that Svannah was inhibited by the presence of her parents. So rather than being a good atmosphere, it was somewhat oppressive or tense.
