A wet day is one with at least 0.04 inches of liquid or liquid-equivalent precipitation. The chance of wet days in Sahaspur varies very significantly throughout the year.
The wetter season lasts 3.0 months, from June 18 to September 17, with a greater than 36% chance of a given day being a wet day. The chance of a wet day peaks at 68% on July 22.
The drier season lasts 9.0 months, from September 17 to June 18. The smallest chance of a wet day is 2% on November 14.
Among wet days, we distinguish between those that experience rain alone, snow alone, or a mixture of the two. Based on this categorization, the most common form of precipitation throughout the year is rain alone, with a peak probability of 68% on July 22.

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.
Sahaspur experiences extreme seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.
The muggier period of the year lasts for 5.1 months, from May 21 to October 23, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 26% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is August 21, with muggy conditions 100% of the time.
The least muggy day of the year is December 31, when muggy conditions are essentially unheard of.

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.

This section discusses the total daily incident shortwave solar energy reaching the surface of the ground over a wide area, taking full account of seasonal variations in the length of the day, the elevation of the Sun above the horizon, and absorption by clouds and other atmospheric constituents. Shortwave radiation includes visible light and ultraviolet radiation.
The average daily incident shortwave solar energy experiences significant seasonal variation over the course of the year.
The brighter period of the year lasts for 2.7 months, from April 8 to June 29, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter above 6.8 kWh. The brightest day of the year is May 29, with an average of 7.7 kWh.

Temperature and Dew Point
There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Sahaspur.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Sahaspur 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 Sahaspur is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Sahaspur and a given station.
All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Tables of the Sun, Moon and Planets , 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.
