In Ferraro Mézair, the summers are short, warm, dry, and mostly clear and the winters are cold, wet, and partly cloudy. Based on the beach/pool score, the best time of year to visit Ferraro Mézair for hot- weather activities is from early July to late August.
The hot season lasts for 2.9 months, from June 21 to September 19, with an average daily high temperature above 81 °F. The cool season lasts for 3.7 months, from November 16 to March 5, with an average daily high temperature below 61 °F.
In Ferraro Mézair, the average percentage of the sky covered by clouds experiences significant seasonal variation over the course of the year. The clearer part of the year in Ferraro Mézair begins around June 7 and lasts for 3.3 months, ending around September 16.
The cloudier part of the year begins around September 16 and lasts for 8.7 months, ending around June 7. Based on this categorization, the most common form of precipitation throughout the year is rain alone, with a peak probability of 33% on October 31.
Ferraro Mézair experiences significant seasonal variation in monthly rainfall. The rainy period of the year lasts for 10.0 months, from August 26 to June 24, with a sliding 31-day rainfall of at least 0.5 inches.
The most rain falls during the 31 days centered around November 6, with an average total accumulation of 3.8 inches. Daylight saving time (DST) is observed in Ferraro Mézair during 2021, starting in the spring on March 28, lasting 7.1 months, and ending in the fall on October 31.
We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. The percentage of time spent at various humidity comfort levels, categorized by dew point.
This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The average hourly wind speed in Ferraro Mézair experiences mild seasonal variation over the course of the year.
The windier part of the year lasts for 3.6 months, from January 30 to May 19, with average wind speeds of more than 7.3 miles per hour. The predominant average hourly wind direction in Ferraro Mézair varies throughout the year.
The wind is most often from the east for 4.4 months, from October 21 to March 3, with a peak percentage of 36% on January 1. The lightly tinted areas at the boundaries are the percentage of hours spent in the implied intermediate directions (northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest).
The time of year with warmer water lasts for 3.9 months, from June 20 to October 17, with an average temperature above 64 °F. The time of year with cooler water lasts for 3.7 months, from December 30 to April 20, with an average temperature below 59 °F.
To characterize how pleasant the weather is in Ferraro Mézair throughout the year, we compute two travel scores. The tourism score favors clear, painless days with perceived temperatures between 65 °F and 80 °F.
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. 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).
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. 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.
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 3.1 months, from May 17 to August 21, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter above 6.9 kWh.
The darker period of the year lasts for 3.6 months, from October 26 to February 14, with an average daily incident shortwave energy per square meter below 3.1 kWh. There are 2 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Ferraro Mézair.
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.
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.
