Precipitation

A wet day is one with at least 0.04 inches of liquid or liquid-equivalent precipitation. In Aksarka, the chance of a wet day over the course of January is essentially constant, remaining around 8% throughout.

For reference, the year's highest daily chance of a wet day is 33% on June 6, and its lowest chance is 7% on February 4.

Probability of Precipitation in January

The percentage of days in which various types of precipitation are observed, excluding trace quantities: rain alone, snow alone, and mixed (both rain and snow fell in the same day).

Snowfall

We report snowfall in liquid-equivalent terms. The actual depth of new snowfall is typically between 5 and 10 times the liquid-equivalent amount, assuming the ground is frozen. As with rainfall, we consider the liquid-equivalent snowfall accumulated over a sliding 31-day period centered around each day.

The average sliding 31-day liquid-equivalent snowfall during January in Aksarka is essentially constant, remaining about 0.3 inches throughout, and rarely exceeding 0.7 inches or falling to 0.0 inches.

The lowest average 31-day liquid-equivalent accumulation is 0.3 inches on January 26.

Sun

Due to its extreme latitude, Aksarka experiences polar day (also known as the midnight Sun) during the summer. The precise start and end dates of polar day and night vary from year to year and depend on the precise location and elevation of the observer, and the local topography.

Neither polar day nor polar night occur during the month of January.

Over the course of January in Aksarka, the length of the day is very rapidly increasing. From the start to the end of the month, the length of the day increases by 3 hours, 35 minutes, implying an average daily increase of 7 minutes, 11 seconds, and weekly increase of 50 minutes, 14 seconds.

Humidity

We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.

The chance that a given day will be muggy in Aksarka is essentially constant during January, remaining around 0% throughout.

For reference, on July 15, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 3% of the time, while on January 1, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

Growing Season

Definitions of the growing season vary throughout the world, but for the purposes of this report, we define it as the longest continuous period of non-freezing temperatures (≥ 32°F) in the year (the calendar year in the Northern Hemisphere, or from July 1 until June 30 in the Southern Hemisphere).

The growing season in Aksarka typically lasts for 3.4 months (105 days), from around June 3 to around September 15, rarely starting before May 18 or after June 18, and rarely ending before August 27 or after October 2.

The month of January in Aksarka is reliably fully outside of the growing season.

Data Sources

This report illustrates the typical weather in Aksarka, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.

Temperature and Dew Point

There is only a single weather station, Salekhard Airport, in our network suitable to be used as a proxy for the historical temperature and dew point records of Aksarka.

At a distance of 53 kilometers from Aksarka, closer than our threshold of 150 kilometers, this station is deemed sufficiently nearby to be relied upon as our primary source for temperature and dew point records.

The station records are corrected for the elevation difference between the station and Aksarka according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.

Please note that the station records themselves may additionally have been back-filled using other nearby stations or the MERRA-2 reanalysis.

Other Data

All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , by Jean Meeus.

All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA's MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.

Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Elevation data comes from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) , published by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series. While having the tremendous advantages of temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have model-based errors, (2) are coarsely sampled on a 50 km grid and are therefore unable to reconstruct the local variations of many microclimates, and (3) have particular difficulty with the weather in some coastal areas, especially small islands.

We further caution that our travel scores are only as good as the data that underpin them, that weather conditions at any given location and time are unpredictable and variable, and that the definition of the scores reflects a particular set of preferences that may not agree with those of any particular reader.
