There is a lot of data at work to make Liveloúla Travel's generator to work. In interest of complete transparency, this is how our data was gathered.
Liveloúla Travel is created using legitimate climate data collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Government of Canada. However, there are specific parameters that have been created that need to be defined in full here for all users. This is in the interest of being as transparent with the users as possible.
There are four main seasons in one year. Though some places feel those different seasons more starkly vs. others, there can still be small differences from season to season that matter to planning.
The seasons on the generator as listed as follows:
|September - November
|December - February
|March - May
|June - August
There will be disagreements among groups of people on what months the seasons “truly” fall. However, this system works best for this site for two reasons: it is inspired by the official seasonal equinoxes throughout the year, but also this way the months are evenly distributed among the seasons.
The temperature is represented by Fahrenheit. There are six options for temperature the user can choose between.
The parameters are as follows:
|30 ≤ 59
|60 ≤ 79
|80 ≤ 89
Unlike the seasons' parameters, this distribution is not even. This is due to the nature of how Fahrenheit behaves, as well as its large range of possibilities throughout the year.
“Very Cold” is undeniably freezing temperatures. “Cold” is a step above and borders mild weather. “Mild” weather can be lightly breezy or warm. Up higher is “Hot,” which is commonly described as “beach weather.” For “Very Hot,” this exists in the desert areas of the world.
While Very Cold and Very Hot are both options, they are rare. Liveloúla Travel advises taking extra precautions when traveling to destinations like these, though they offer a great time when responsible.
Humidity, climate, and precipitation are complicated terms that are difficult to simplify. The system in place for Liveloúla Travel is not meant to replace scientific experts or to act as a guide better than looking at the 30 year climate normals in their true form. Now, here is the deal with the humidity statistic.
The humidity aspect for the generator will be precipitation levels only. There is conflicting information on the web with relative humidity numbers, as well as literature that is long and full of jargon about the “right way” to measure humidity, and whether it includes precipitation, snowfall, neither or both.
To keep to the simplicity of the site, precipitation levels will be the only metric. Why not change it to precipitation? Well, precipitation, humidity, snowfall and other climate variables all affect one another. Precipitation is also used on any climate models to label an area with a certain climate denotion.
The parameters are as follows:
|4 ≤ 15
“Low” is meant to represent the most dry places. The dry heat that can be felt in places like Arizona. It feels like you’re baking in an oven. For colder weather, this means there can be active snowing. It will collect on the ground and stick around for a long time without melting away.
“Medium” are the most temperate locations. There will be more humid and less humid days depending on the day.
“High” is for the places that have the most storms, the thick humid heavy air found in places like Florida.
Liveloúla Travel is an ever-changing place. There will be changes made to the site as new information is learned. We strongly advise contacting us if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.
