The figure below presents a compact representation of key lunar data for the summer of 2021. The horizontal axis is the day, the vertical axis is the hour of the day, and the colored areas indicate when the moon is above the horizon. The vertical gray bars (new Moons) and blue bars (full Moons) indicate key Moon phases. The label associated with each bar indicates the date and time that the phase is obtained, and the companion time labels indicate the rise and set times of the Moon for the nearest time interval in which the moon is above the horizon.

We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.
The chance that a given day will be muggy in Hagerman is increasing during the summer, rising from 2% to 9% over the course of the season.
The highest chance of a muggy day during the summer is 13% on August 12.
For reference, on August 12, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 13% of the time, while on November 18, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.
The average hourly wind speed in Hagerman is rapidly decreasing during the summer, decreasing from 10.0 miles per hour to 7.7 miles per hour over the course of the season.
For reference, on April 11, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 11.3 miles per hour, while on August 18, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 7.6 miles per hour.
The lowest daily average wind speed during the summer is 7.6 miles per hour on August 18.

Definitions of the growing season vary throughout the world, but for the purposes of this report, we define it as the longest continuous period of non-freezing temperatures (≥ 32°F) in the year (the calendar year in the Northern Hemisphere, or from July 1 until June 30 in the Southern Hemisphere).
The growing season in Hagerman typically lasts for 7.4 months (226 days), from around March 27 to around November 9, rarely starting before March 3 or after April 19, and rarely ending before October 21 or after November 27.
The summer in Hagerman is reliably fully within the growing season.
Time Spent in Various Temperature Bands and the Growing Season in the Summer in Hagerman
Growing degree days are a measure of yearly heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development, and defined as the integral of warmth above a base temperature, discarding any excess above a maximum temperature. In this report, we use a base of 50°F and a cap of 86°F.
The average accumulated growing degree days in Hagerman are very rapidly increasing during the summer, increasing by 2,593°F, from 1,533°F to 4,126°F, over the course of the season.

This report illustrates the typical weather in Hagerman, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.
Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Hagerman.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Hagerman 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 Hagerman is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Hagerman and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Roswell Industrial Air Center Airport (KROW, 52%, 27 kilometers, northwest); Artesia Municipal Airport (KATS, 42%, 32 kilometers, southwest); and Hobbs Airport (KHOB, 6%, 114 kilometers, southeast).
All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , by Jean Meeus.
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.
Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
Elevation data comes from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) , published by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The information on this site is provided as is, without any assurances as to its accuracy or suitability for any purpose. Weather data is prone to errors, outages, and other defects. We assume no responsibility for any decisions made on the basis of the content presented on this site.
We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series. While having the tremendous advantages of temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have model-based errors, (2) are coarsely sampled on a 50 km grid and are therefore unable to reconstruct the local variations of many microclimates, and (3) have particular difficulty with the weather in some coastal areas, especially small islands.
We further caution that our travel scores are only as good as the data that underpin them, that weather conditions at any given location and time are unpredictable and variable, and that the definition of the scores reflects a particular set of preferences that may not agree with those of any particular reader.
