Temperature and Dew Point
There is only a single weather station, Licenciado Adolfo López Mateos International Airport, in our network suitable to be used as a proxy for the historical temperature and dew point records of Santa Cruz Cuauhtenco.
At a distance of 20 kilometers from Santa Cruz Cuauhtenco, closer than our threshold of 150 kilometers, this station is deemed sufficiently nearby to be relied upon as our primary source for temperature and dew point records.
The station records are corrected for the elevation difference between the station and Santa Cruz Cuauhtenco according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.
Please note that the station records themselves may additionally have been back-filled using other nearby stations or the MERRA-2 reanalysis.
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.
