mm vs. cm for precipitation
: 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)
::I also agree. Besides that mm is pretty much the standard everywhere as far as I'm aware, whenever I see a precipitation level number, I almost unconsciously compare it with the 576 ''mm'' of rainfall my hometown receives annually, to get an idea of how much rain the number in the table represents. I guess there should be many other people doing this as well, so I'm in favour of switching to mm. – [[User:Vidimian|Vidimian]] 03:33, 2 October 2010 (EDT)
