To show variation within the months and not just the monthly totals, we show the rainfall accumulated over a sliding 31-day period centered around each day of the year. Magasa experiences significant seasonal variation in monthly rainfall.
Rain falls throughout the year in Magasa. The most rain falls during the 31 days centered around October 21, with an average total accumulation of 3.4 inches.
The least rain falls around January 19, with an average total accumulation of 0.8 inches.
Average Monthly Rainfall
We report snowfall in liquid-equivalent terms. The actual depth of new snowfall is typically between 5 and 10 times the liquid-equivalent amount, assuming the ground is frozen. Colder, drier snow tends to be on the higher end of that range and warmer, wetter snow on the lower end.
As with rainfall, we consider the snowfall accumulated over a sliding 31-day period centered around each day of the year. Magasa experiences some seasonal variation in monthly liquid-equivalent snowfall.
The snowy period of the year lasts for 4.8 months, from November 5 to March 31, with a sliding 31-day liquid-equivalent snowfall of at least 0.1 inches. The most snow falls during the 31 days centered around January 6, with an average total liquid-equivalent accumulation of 0.6 inches.

Sunrise & Sunset with Twilight and Daylight Saving Time
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.
The perceived humidity level in Magasa, as measured by the percentage of time in which the humidity comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable, does not vary significantly over the course of the year, staying within 1% of 1% throughout.
Humidity Comfort Levels
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 Magasa does not vary significantly over the course of the year, remaining within 0.5 miles per hour of 4.2 miles per hour throughout.
Average Wind Speed
The predominant average hourly wind direction in Magasa varies throughout the year.
The wind is most often from the east for 1.3 months, from March 25 to May 2 and for 3.4 weeks, from September 29 to October 23, with a peak percentage of 34% on April 19. The wind is most often from the south for 4.9 months, from May 2 to September 29, with a peak percentage of 39% on July 8. The wind is most often from the north for 5.1 months, from October 23 to March 25, with a peak percentage of 60% on January 1.
Best Time of Year to Visit
To characterize how pleasant the weather is in Magasa 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 Magasa for general outdoor tourist activities is from early July to late August, with a peak score in the first week of August.
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 Magasa for hot-weather activities is from mid July to mid August, with a peak score in the last week of July.
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.
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 Magasa typically lasts for 6.6 months (200 days), from around April 17 to around November 3, rarely starting before March 30 or after May 6, and rarely ending before October 14 or after November 24.
Time Spent in Various Temperature Bands and the Growing Season
Growing degree days are a measure of yearly heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development, and defined as the integral of warmth above a base temperature, discarding any excess above a maximum temperature. In this report, we use a base of 50°F and a cap of 86°F.
Based on growing degree days alone, the first spring blooms in Magasa should appear around May 19, only rarely appearing before May 8 or after June 5.

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 extreme seasonal variation over the course of the year.
The brighter period of the year lasts for 3.3 months, from May 9 to August 18, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter above 5.7 kWh. The brightest day of the year is July 8, with an average of 6.8 kWh.
The darker period of the year lasts for 3.4 months, from October 28 to February 9, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter below 2.5 kWh. The darkest day of the year is December 16, with an average of 1.5 kWh.

This report illustrates the typical weather in Magasa, 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 Magasa.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Magasa 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 Magasa is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Magasa and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Verona Brescia Airport (34%, 45 kilometers, southwest); Verona Villafranca Airport (32%, 48 kilometers, southeast); and Paganella (meteorological station) (34%, 52 kilometers, northeast).
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.
