Weather is described by the temperature, precipitation, and wind speed. Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius (℃), precipitation is measured in millimeters (mm), and wind speed is measured in meters per second (mps). Weather conditions for an entire month can be combined in an average. Average weather conditions can be used to identify patterns. This table shows four summer months and the average weather during those months.
