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.
Massa Finalese experiences significant seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.
The muggier period of the year lasts for 3.1 months, from June 10 to September 15, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 10% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is August 6, with muggy conditions 39% of the time.
The least muggy day of the year is December 7, when muggy conditions are essentially unheard of.

This report illustrates the typical weather in Massa Finalese, 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 5 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Massa Finalese.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Massa Finalese 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 Massa Finalese is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Massa Finalese and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport (52%, 36 kilometers, south); Verona Villafranca Airport (21%, 66 kilometers, northwest); Istrana (9%, 115 kilometers, northeast); Venice Marco Polo Airport (9%, 115 kilometers, northeast); and Piacenza-San Damiano Air Base (9%, 118 kilometers, west).
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.
Elevation data comes from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) , published by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series. While having the tremendous advantages of temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have model-based errors, (2) are coarsely sampled on a 50 km grid and are therefore unable to reconstruct the local variations of many microclimates, and (3) have particular difficulty with the weather in some coastal areas, especially small islands.
