Temperature and Dew Point
There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in San José.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and San José 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 San José is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between San José and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Cap. FAP José A. Quiñones Gonzáles International Airport (100%, 5.4 kilometers, south) and Capitán FAP Guillermo Concha Iberico International Airport (0.5%, 192 kilometers, northwest).
