== mm vs. cm for precipitation ==
The unit that precipitation levels are in should be mm, as it is much more commonly used than cm in this context. [[User:|]] 23:44, 1 October 2010 (EDT)
: I moved this over from [[Template talk:Climate]], figuring this was the better place for a discussion. I'm in agreement with the anonymous user: centimeters are customary only for snowfall, but millimeters for both rainfall and combined precipitation measurements, the latter of which tends towards "rain equivalent" numbers for snow. The Big Wiki also uses mm in their standard climate template. — [[User:Dguillaime|D. Guillaime]] 02:02, 2 October 2010 (EDT)
