Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Columbia.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Columbia according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.
The estimated value at Columbia is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Columbia and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Wayne County Airport (38%, 49 kilometers, southeast); Glasgow Municipal Airport (29%, 58 kilometers, west); Stuart Powell Field (21%, 71 kilometers, northeast); and Godman Army Airfield (12%, 106 kilometers, northwest).
