Climate. Xxxxx Power Station is situated in a summer rainfall area with an average annual precipitation of about 750 mm falling almost entirely during the months of October to April. The average rainfall per month generally exceeds 40 mm during this period, although drought periods do occur which can last for 20 days or longer. Drought periods occur most frequently during the months of October/November and March/April. January is statistically the highest rainfall month with an average monthly rainfall of about 130 mm. June has the lowest rainfall with an average monthly rainfall of about 7 mm. Approximately 85% of the annual rainfall occurs in the summer months and heavy falls of 125 to 150 mm occasionally occur in a single day. The annual average number of thunderstorms is about 75. These storms are often violent with severe lightning and strong (but short-lived) gusty winds and are sometimes accompanied by hail. This region has among the highest hail frequencies in South Africa; about 4 to 7 occurrences (depending mainly on altitude) may be expected annually. January is normally the hottest month with an average daily maximum temperature of 27°C with a mean daily temperature in winter being about 16°C. Winter average daily temperatures vary from 18, 5°C maximum to -1°C minimum. The extreme temperatures recorded range from 34, 7°C to minus 12, 4°C for the period 1920 - 1984. (Source: Weather Bureau, Pretoria) Winds are generally light to moderate except during thunderstorms. Generally the prevailing wind directions are from the North West during the day and from the east at night. During daytime, the prevailing winds are from the north-western direction. During night-time, the prevailing winds are from the north-eastern direction. The highest recorded average wind speed is 17, 6 km/hour. The average wind velocity over the year is 14, 5 km/hour.

Climate. The climate component for the District Allowance rates effective 1 July 2010 is calculated by multiplying $806 by a quotient derived from the division of the Bureau of Meteorology Relative Strain Index (RSI) value for a specific location or area less 10 by the maximum RSI index value less 10 (200-10=190). Future annual calculations of the climate component will be made on 1 July each year using the monetary value of the previous year adjusted by the annual increase in the Perth Consumer Price Index March to March as issued by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Climate. Discuss mean annual temperatures, temperature extremes, 25-year 24-hour maximum rainfall, average annual rainfall, prevailing wind direction, etc.
Climate. 3.1 The Climate conditions in Meghalaya in general is mild in summer and rather extreme cold in winter. The average of the maximum daily temperature during the hottest month of July is about 28°C and average of the minimum daily temperature during the coldest month of January is about 3°C.

Climate. The District will ensure that the educational environment of each student who reports sexual or gender-based harassment is free of harassment, and will take steps to eliminate the hostile environment, including interim measures to assist or protect the complaining student and the broader school community, where appropriate, during the investigation of reported harassment. In collaboration with the consultant, the District will develop and conduct an annual climate check process to assess students’ attitudes and knowledge regarding various types of sexual and gender-based harassment; gather information concerning students’ experience with sexual and gender-based harassment; determine whether students know when and how to report sexual and gender-based harassment; and assess the effectiveness of steps taken pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise by the District to ensure that its schools are free of sexual and gender-based harassment and, in particular, sexual assaults and sexual violence. The climate check process will be conducted through:
Climate. Lag The delay that occurs in climate change as a result of some factor that changes only very slowly. For example, the effects of releasing more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere occur gradually over time because the ocean takes a long time to warm up in response to a change in radiation.

Climate. Survey May, 2000‌ (Revised May, 2002) The District and the Association agree that a Joint Study Committee will review the use of an annual research-based climate survey. The survey will be administered at various levels, with results available to all stakeholders. The Joint Study Committee will consist of four (4) persons, two (2) to be appointed by the Association and two (2) by the District.
Climate. Ecological consequences of climate change to amphibians may include changes in population dynamics, timing of reproduction, changing geographic range, and broader community and ecosystem level changes (Xxxxxx et al. 2001, XxXxxxx 2001, Xxxxx and Xxxxxxxxx 2003, Xxxxxx et al. 2004, Corn 2005, Parmesan 2006, Xxxxx and Olden 2008, Xxxxxx et al. 2010). In contrast, XxXxxxxxx and Maxell (2010) found that decreasing winter severity associated with warmer, drier xxxxxxx increased the population viability of Columbia spotted frogs in a high elevation wilderness area in Montana (Northern DPS). The climate change related impacts to Columbia spotted frogs within Nevada are not known with certainty. Predicted outcomes of climate change imply that negative impacts will occur through increased stream temperatures, decreased stream flow, changes in the hydrograph, and increased frequency of extreme events (Xxxxxxx et al. 2005, Xxxxx et al. 2007, Xxxxx et al. 2008, Xxxx et al. 2008, Kaushal et al. 2010). Water temperatures have increased and are predicted to continue to increase in the future; however, impacts from rising water temperature are not known for Columbia spotted frogs. Rising stream temperatures may allow non-native species to expand their current ranges into Columbia spotted frog occupied habitat (Xxxxx et al. 2008). Reductions in streamflow are predicted to have a negative impact on Columbia spotted frog populations because of the fragmented nature of populations, the small size of most populations, and the close association of recruitment and survival to the amount of water available. Degraded aquatic systems exhibit greatly reduced resiliency to accommodate natural disturbances such as floods, fire, and drought, thereby exacerbating the effects of those events, which may further reduce the persistence of these populations (Xxxxxx et al. 2006). The Nevada Natural Heritage Program, in association with the Nevada Wildlife Action Plan (WAP) revision (Wildlife Action Plan Team 2012), conducted a climate change vulnerability assessment of all WAP Species of Conservation Priority (SOCP), including the Columbia spotted frog. NatureServe’s Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) was used to conduct the relative vulnerability to climate change of more than 358 species (Wildlife Action Plan Team 2012, Xxxxx 2012). The CCVI uses a scoring system that integrates a species’ predicted exposure (direct and indirect) to climate change within the assessment area (i.e., th...
Climate. Resident acknowledges and understands that (a) the assigned space is located in a climate in which temperatures, humidity, and other naturally occurring conditions normally allow the growth of mold and mildew in locations where dampness or moisture are present; and, (b) upon moving into the assigned space, Resident will have control over and knowledge concerning conditions in the interior of the assigned space. Therefore, Resident agrees to do the following: (a) set thermostats to provide appropriate climate control; (b) maintain the assigned space in a clean condition by mopping, vacuuming, or wiping hard surfaces with a household cleaner; (c) promptly remove visible moisture or condensation on floors, walls, windows, ceilings and other surfaces; and (d) take other measures as may be necessary to prevent mold and mildew from accumulating in the assigned space (including without limitation reporting immediately to the University any evidence of water leaks, mold, or mildew-like growth).
