Temperature and Dew Point
There are 5 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Meranges.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Meranges 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 Meranges is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Meranges and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Saint-Girons - Antichan (25%, 84 kilometers, northwest); Perpignan–Rivesaltes Airport (19%, 95 kilometers, east); Carcassonne-Salvaza (20%, 96 kilometers, northeast); Aeroport de Girona - Costa Brava (20%, 101 kilometers, southeast); and Barcelona–El Prat Airport (16%, 130 kilometers, south).
