Temperature and Dew Point
There are 6 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Villeneuve.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Villeneuve 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 Villeneuve is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Villeneuve and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Turin Caselle Airport (16%, 90 kilometers, east); Chambéry Airport (15%, 94 kilometers, northwest); Cuneo International Airport (17%, 95 kilometers, southeast); Aosta Airport (18%, 107 kilometers, northeast); Château-Arnoux-Saint-Auban Airport (17%, 108 kilometers, southwest); and Grenoble-Isère Airport (16%, 108 kilometers, northwest).
