The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is MYSTIC L which is approximately 10 miles away and has an elevation of 6,558 feet (2,750 feet lower than Dewey Lake). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
