Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Mountain Village.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Mountain Village 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 Mountain Village is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Mountain Village and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Telluride Regional Airport (KTEX, 88%, 4.3 kilometers, northwest); Durango–La Plata County Airport (KDRO, 3.8%, 88 kilometers, south); Stevens Field (KPSO, 4.2%, 101 kilometers, southeast); and Gunnison County Airport (KGUC, 4.1%, 105 kilometers, northeast).
