Temperature and Dew Point
There are 6 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Le Monêtier-les-Bains.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Le Monêtier-les-Bains 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 Le Monêtier-les-Bains is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Le Monêtier-les-Bains and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Chambéry Airport (16%, 89 kilometers, northwest); Turin Caselle Airport (16%, 93 kilometers, east); Cuneo International Airport (17%, 100 kilometers, southeast); Grenoble-Isère Airport (17%, 102 kilometers, northwest); Aosta Airport (18%, 107 kilometers, northeast); and Château-Arnoux-Saint-Auban Airport (17%, 109 kilometers, south).
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.
