Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Columbus.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Columbus 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 Columbus is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Columbus and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Shelbyville Municipal Airport (48%, 43 kilometers, north); Monroe County Airport (29%, 61 kilometers, west); Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (12%, 109 kilometers, east); and Bowman Field (12%, 111 kilometers, south).
