Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Vélez-Málaga.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Vélez-Málaga 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 Vélez-Málaga is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Vélez-Málaga and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Málaga Airport (69%, 37 kilometers, west); Federico García Lorca Airport (25%, 54 kilometers, northeast); and Cherif Al Idrissi Airport (7%, 180 kilometers, south).
