‘Total’ shows the total flyable days, on average, in a year, and the same as a percentage.

Trend analysis

This is the average change (per year, over the 19 years) in the average number of days in each month for which (in this timeslot) the visibility was adequate, and there was no bad weather, and the wind speed was less than or equal to that shown on the left.

For example, if a value of +0.5 is shown for a given month then that implies that since 1997 the number of flyable days in that month has increased by (on average) half a day per year.
