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.
San Ramón experiences extreme seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.
The muggier period of the year lasts for 10 months, from September 1 to July 7, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 53% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is January 12, with muggy conditions 100% of the time.
The least muggy day of the year is August 1, with muggy conditions 37% 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 San Ramón does not vary significantly over the course of the year, remaining within 0.5 miles per hour of 3.2 miles per hour throughout.
Average Wind Speed
The predominant average hourly wind direction in San Ramón is from the north throughout the year.
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 per square meter does not vary significantly over the course of the year, remaining within 0.3 kilowatt-hours of 5.2 kilowatt-hours throughout.

Temperature and Dew Point
There is only a single weather station, Teniente Jorge Henrich Arauz Airport, in our network suitable to be used as a proxy for the historical temperature and dew point records of San Ramón.
At a distance of 172 kilometers from San Ramón, further than our threshold of 150 kilometers, this station is deemed insufficiently nearby to be relied upon as our primary source for temperature and dew point records. Consequently, the station records are blended with interpolated values from NASA's MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis , and both are corrected for elevation differences according to the International Standard Atmosphere .
The weight assigned to the MERRA-2 value depends on the distance from San Ramón to the nearest station, increasing from 0% at 150 kilometers to 100% at 200 kilometers. In this case, the MERRA-2 weight is 31%, making the weight assigned to the weather station 69%.
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.
