The amount of precipitable water vapour, W, usually changes only slightly during a 24-h period and has a good correlation with surface humidity parameters.
It should be underlined that although the amount of precipitable water vapour is quite stable during a day, its counterpart, surface water vapour pressure is characterized by a significant diurnal course.
