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.

Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Rosa Blanca.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Rosa Blanca 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 Rosa Blanca is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Rosa Blanca and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Amado Nervo International Airport (MMEP, 45%, 60 kilometers, northwest); Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (MMPR, 18%, 105 kilometers, southwest); and Guadalajara International Airport (MMGL, 37%, 128 kilometers, southeast).
