Humidity

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.

Logansport experiences extreme seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.

The muggier period of the year lasts for 5.7 months, from April 25 to October 15, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 25% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is July 23, with muggy conditions 96% of the time.

The least muggy day of the year is January 23, with muggy conditions 1% of the time.

Methodology

For each hour between 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM of each day in the analysis period (1980 to 2016), independent scores are computed for perceived temperature, cloud cover, and total precipitation. Those scores are combined into a single hourly composite score, which is then aggregated into days, averaged over all the years in the analysis period, and smoothed.

Our cloud cover score is 10 for fully clear skies, falling linearly to 9 for mostly clear skies, and to 1 for fully overcast skies.

Our precipitation score, which is based on the three-hour precipitation centered on the hour in question, is 10 for no precipitation, falling linearly to 9 for trace precipitation, and to 0 for 0.04 inches of precipitation or more.

Our tourism temperature score is 0 for perceived temperatures below 50°F, rising linearly to 9 for 65°F, to 10 for 75°F, falling linearly to 9 for 80°F, and to 1 for 90°F or hotter.

Our beach/pool temperature score is 0 for perceived temperatures below 65°F, rising linearly to 9 for 75°F, to 10 for 82°F, falling linearly to 9 for 90°F, and to 1 for 100°F or hotter.

Growing Season

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 Logansport typically lasts for 8.6 months (263 days), from around March 3 to around November 21, rarely starting before February 3 or after March 25, and rarely ending before November 1 or after December 10.

Data Sources

This report illustrates the typical weather in Logansport, 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 7 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Logansport.

For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Logansport 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 Logansport is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Logansport and a given station.

The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Shreveport Regional Airport (KSHV, 25%, 55 kilometers, north); Harrison County Airport (KASL, 18%, 67 kilometers, northwest); A L Mangham Jr. Regional Airport (KOCH, 14%, 81 kilometers, southwest); Rusk County Airport (KRFI, 13%, 83 kilometers, west); Natchitoches Regional Airport (KIER, 12%, 89 kilometers, east); Ft. Polk, Peason Ridge (KAQV, 11%, 93 kilometers, southeast); and Jasper, Jasper County-Bell Field Airport (KJAS, 7%, 121 kilometers, south).

Other Data

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.

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.
