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. Morunglav experiences some seasonal variation in monthly liquid-equivalent snowfall.

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.
Morunglav experiences some seasonal variation in the perceived humidity.
The muggier period of the year lasts for 2.7 months, from June 7 to August 29, during which time the comfort level is muggy, oppressive, or miserable at least 5% of the time. The muggiest day of the year is July 28, with muggy conditions 21% of the time.
The least muggy day of the year is February 12, when muggy conditions are essentially unheard of.

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 Morunglav experiences mild seasonal variation over the course of the year.
The windier part of the year lasts for 3.9 months, from January 14 to May 12, with average wind speeds of more than 7.3 miles per hour. The windiest day of the year is March 16, with an average hourly wind speed of 8.5 miles per hour.
The calmer time of year lasts for 8.1 months, from May 12 to January 14. The calmest day of the year is August 10, with an average hourly wind speed of 6.2 miles per hour.
Average Wind Speed
The predominant average hourly wind direction in Morunglav varies throughout the year.
The wind is most often from the east for 3.8 months, from February 9 to June 4 and for 5.3 months, from July 3 to December 11, with a peak percentage of 51% on October 21. The wind is most often from the west for 4.1 weeks, from June 4 to July 3 and for 1.9 months, from December 11 to February 9, with a peak percentage of 37% on June 13.
Best Time of Year to Visit
To characterize how pleasant the weather is in Morunglav 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 Morunglav for general outdoor tourist activities is from late May to late September, with a peak score in the last 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 Morunglav for hot-weather activities is from early 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 Morunglav typically lasts for 7.1 months (217 days), from around March 27 to around October 30, rarely starting before March 8 or after April 15, and rarely ending before October 13 or after November 16.
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 Morunglav should appear around April 6, only rarely appearing before March 24 or after April 22.

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 3.2 months, from May 12 to August 20, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter above 6.1 kWh. The brightest day of the year is July 8, with an average of 7.3 kWh.

Temperature and Dew Point
There are 4 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Morunglav.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Morunglav 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 Morunglav is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Morunglav and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Craiova Airport (84%, 25 kilometers, southwest); Sibiu International Airport (6%, 147 kilometers, north); Henri Coandă International Airport (5%, 157 kilometers, east); and Ruse Airport (4.9%, 162 kilometers, southeast).
All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , 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.
