Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Zapata.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Zapata 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 Zapata is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Zapata and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Zapata County Airport (97%, 7 kilometers, north); Edinburg Rio Grande Valley Regional Freight Terminal Airport (1.3%, 125 kilometers, southeast); Del Norte International Airport (0.9%, 151 kilometers, southwest); and General Mariano Escobedo International Airport (1.0%, 151 kilometers, southwest).
