Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Mijas.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Mijas 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 Mijas is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Mijas and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Málaga Airport (60%, 15 kilometers, northeast); Gibraltar International Airport (19%, 81 kilometers, southwest); Morón Air Base (14%, 108 kilometers, northwest); and Cherif Al Idrissi Airport (7%, 174 kilometers, southeast).
