Statia Rain History 1981 to Today

This section shows the rainfall history on Statia taken from Upper Round Hill (1981-2005) and Pleasures (2006 to today). Until 2013, data was collected in rain gauges. Since 11-Jan-2013, rain data is automatically recorded from the Pleasures weather station. The weather station uses a tipping-bucket rain instrument.

Monthly Rain Comparison

The following chart shows Statia's monthly minimum, median, and maximum rainfall since 1981. Half the months have more rainfall and half have less than the median. The plot shows the median instead of the average because it is less sensitive to extreme values. This year's actual monthly rainfall, measured by the weather station in Pleasures, is also plotted.

Solar History

The following charts are based on solar radiation data taken by the Pleasures weather station. The first chart shows the cumulative high,low, and median kilowatt hours per square meter for each month of the year beginning 11 January 2013. The current year is shown through the end of last month for comparison. The second chart shows the same information except as the daily average for each month.
