Cloud Cover Categories
A wet day is one with at least 0.04 inches of liquid or liquid-equivalent precipitation. The chance of wet days in Santo Niño varies very significantly throughout the year.
The wetter season lasts 5.0 months, from May 14 to October 15, with a greater than 41% chance of a given day being a wet day. The chance of a wet day peaks at 77% on August 10.
The drier season lasts 7.0 months, from October 15 to May 14. The smallest chance of a wet day is 4% on January 16.
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 77% on August 10.

Santo Niño is located near a large body of water (e.g., ocean, sea, or large lake). This section reports on the wide-area average surface temperature of that water.
The average water temperature experiences some seasonal variation over the course of the year.
The time of year with warmer water lasts for 2.7 months, from April 25 to July 17, with an average temperature above 85°F. The day of the year with the warmest water is May 30, with an average temperature of 86°F.

Best Time of Year to Visit
To characterize how pleasant the weather is in Santo Niño throughout the year, we compute two travel scores.
The tourism score favors clear, rainless days with perceived temperatures between 65°F and 80°F. Based on this score, the best time of year to visit Santo Niño for general outdoor tourist activities is from early December to mid March, with a peak score in the third week of January.
The beach/pool score favors clear, rainless days with perceived temperatures between 75°F and 90°F. Based on this score, the best time of year to visit Santo Niño for hot-weather activities is from early December to early April, with a peak score in the first week of March.
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.
Temperatures in Santo Niño are sufficiently warm year round that it is not entirely meaningful to discuss the growing season in these terms. We nevertheless include the chart below as an illustration of the distribution of temperatures experienced throughout the year.

For the purposes of this report, the geographical coordinates of Santo Niño are 15.334 deg latitude, 120.626 deg longitude, and 144 ft elevation.
The topography within 2 miles of Santo Niño is essentially flat, with a maximum elevation change of 92 feet and an average elevation above sea level of 140 feet. Within 10 miles is essentially flat (971 feet). Within 50 miles contains very significant variations in elevation (6,755 feet).
The area within 2 miles of Santo Niño is covered by cropland (73%) and trees (18%), within 10 miles by cropland (66%) and trees (21%), and within 50 miles by cropland (48%) and trees (29%).
This report illustrates the typical weather in Santo Niño, 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 Santo Niño.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Santo Niño 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 Santo Niño is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Santo Niño and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Clark International Airport (83%, 18 kilometers, southwest); Lingayen Airfield (9%, 88 kilometers, north); and Dr. Juan C. Angara Airport (7%, 104 kilometers, northeast).
