Precipitation

A wet day is one with at least 0.04 inches of liquid or liquid-equivalent precipitation. In Manning, the chance of a wet day over the course of January is essentially constant, remaining around 11% throughout.

For reference, the year's highest daily chance of a wet day is 29% on June 22, and its lowest chance is 9% on February 14.

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 Manning is essentially constant, remaining about 0.4 inches throughout, and rarely exceeding 0.9 inches or falling below 0.1 inches.

The average liquid-equivalent snowfall (solid line) accumulated over the course of a sliding 31-day period centered on the day in question, with 25th to 75th and 10th to 90th percentile bands. The thin dotted line is the corresponding average rainfall.

Sun

Over the course of January in Manning, the length of the day is rapidly increasing. From the start to the end of the month, the length of the day increases by 1 hour, 35 minutes, implying an average daily increase of 3 minutes, 10 seconds, and weekly increase of 22 minutes, 8 seconds.

The shortest day of the month is January 1, with 6 hours, 53 minutes of daylight and the longest day is January 31, with 8 hours, 28 minutes of daylight.

Hours of Daylight and Twilight in January

The number of hours during which the Sun is visible (black line). From bottom (most yellow) to top (most gray), the color bands indicate: full daylight, twilight (civil, nautical, and astronomical), and full night.

The latest sunrise of the month in Manning is 9:27 AM on January 1 and the earliest sunrise is 38 minutes earlier at 8:50 AM on January 31.

The earliest sunset is 4:21 PM on January 1 and the latest sunset is 57 minutes later at 5:18 PM on January 31.

Daylight saving time is observed in Manning during 2017, but it neither starts nor ends during January, so the entire month is in standard time.

For reference, on June 21, the longest day of the year, the Sun rises at 4:56 AM and sets 17 hours, 52 minutes later, at 10:48 PM, while on December 21, the shortest day of the year, it rises at 9:26 AM and sets 6 hours, 44 minutes later, at 4:10 PM.

Sunrise & Sunset with Twilight in January

The solar day over the course of January. From bottom to top, the black lines are the previous solar midnight, sunrise, solar noon, sunset, and the next solar midnight. The day, twilights (civil, nautical, and astronomical), and night are indicated by the color bands from yellow to gray.

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 Manning is essentially constant during January, remaining around 0% throughout.

For reference, on July 27, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 1% of the time, while on January 1, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

Humidity Comfort Levels in January

The percentage of time spent at various humidity comfort levels, categorized by dew point: dry < 55°F < comfortable < 60°F < humid < 65°F < muggy < 70°F < oppressive < 75°F < miserable.

Wind

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.

The average hourly wind speed in Manning is essentially constant during January, remaining around 5.5 miles per hour throughout.

For reference, on January 14, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 5.5 miles per hour, while on August 1, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 3.8 miles per hour.

The highest daily average wind speed during January is 5.5 miles per hour on January 24.

The percentage of hours in which the mean wind direction is from each of the four cardinal wind directions (north, east, south, and west), excluding hours in which the mean wind speed is less than 1 mph. The lightly tinted areas at the boundaries are the percentage of hours spent in the implied intermediate directions (northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest).

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 Manning typically lasts for 3.5 months (108 days), from around May 23 to around September 7, rarely starting before May 5 or after June 9, and rarely ending before August 20 or after September 24.

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

Data Sources

This report illustrates the typical weather in Manning year round, 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 are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Manning.

For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Manning 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 Manning is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Manning and a given station.

The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Manning AGDM (94%, 12 kilometers, northeast) and Peace River Airport (6%, 78 kilometers, south).

Other Data

All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Tables of the Sun, Moon and Planets , 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.

Names, locations, and time zones of places and some airports come from the GeoNames Geographical Database .

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.
