Introduction
Meteorology is the science that deals with the
atmosphere and its phenomena. Major area's
of research concern the weather, weather
forecasting and atmospheric composition.
Through meteorological variables, specific
weather conditions are derived in a certain
location at a specific time.
In this presentation, meteorological data in
MRT Guadalupe Station from January 1, 2009 to
December 12, 2009 are shown and interpreted

Definition of terms:
Temperature is a measure of the average heat
or thermal energy of the particles in a substance.
Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in
the air compared to what the air can "hold" at
that temperature.
Dew point is the temperature at which air is
saturated with water vapor, which is the gaseous
state of water
Wind speed is the speed of the weather related
air movement from one place to the next.
Heat index, also known as the apparent
temperature, is what the temperature feels like
to the human body when relative humidity is
combined with the air temperature.

Definition of terms:
Atmospheric pressure is the pressure exerted
by the weight of air in the atmosphere of Earth.
Rainfall rate is a measure of the intensity of
rainfall.
Solar radiation is the radiation, or energy we
get from the sun.
Solar energy is, simply, energy provided by the
sun.
UV Index is a forecast of the amount of skin
damaging UV radiation expected to reach the
earth's surface at the time when the sun is
highest in the sky (around midday).

From the preceding tables from January to
December 2009 some of the conclusions we can
infer are:
It is coldest during the month of January and
hottest during the month of May.
Also, rain rate has been lowest during January
and highest during August

From the pie chart, we can
deduce that:
Majority of the time,
east is the wind direction
being favored with 33%.
The least favored wind
directions are
approximately north,
north east, and south with
1%.

From the column graph, we
can deduce that:
August is the month
wherein the rain rate is
highest
March is the month wherein
the rain rate is lowest

Rain Rate

SUMMARY
The meteorological data in MRT Guadalupe Station from
January 1, 2009 to December 12, 2009 showed
fluctuations in each meteorological variable.
Evidently, during August, the rain rate is highest.
The wind favors the east direction most of the time.
The month with the highest temperature is March.
