# Re: How to calculate the weighted average of Relative humidity?

Hi,

Line 17 is:

RHAvg=dim_avg_wgt_n(RH,wgt,1,0)

The "wgt" array must be the same length as the "nth" dimension. In
your case, length of wgt is 4; I'm not sure what the "0"th dimension
of RH is (check your print(RH) output), but I bet its not 4.

Check out the docs at:

I hope that helps...
