Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Pré-en-Pail.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Pré-en-Pail 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 Pré-en-Pail is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Pré-en-Pail and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Alençon Valframbert Airport (70%, 23 kilometers, east); Laval-Entrammes (18%, 62 kilometers, southwest); and Caen – Carpiquet Airport (12%, 81 kilometers, north).
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.
