Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Calais.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Calais 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 Calais is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Calais and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: St. Stephen, N. B. (98%, 3.8 kilometers, northeast); Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport (0.6%, 119 kilometers, southwest); Millinocket Municipal Airport (0.6%, 122 kilometers, northwest); and Bangor International Airport (0.5%, 129 kilometers, west).
