Variate Description Units
Year Year in which the date occurs
Date The date represents time intervals from 16:00 thru 16:00 e.g. minimum temperature data for 02-may-1987 is the minimum temperature recorded from 30-apr-1987:16:00 to 01-may-1987:16:00. This date corresponds to date noted at the end of the day interval. (01-may-1987:24:00:00 = 02-may-1987:00:00:00).
Time of Observation approximate time of observation
Temp Max maximum temperature for previous 24 hour period
Temp Min minimum temperature for previous 24 hour period
Temp at Observation temperature at time of observation
Precip Rain precipitation as rain for previous 24 hour period. An 'M' indicates that the rainfall was not measured that day and any rain that is collected is added to the subsequent measurement.
Precip Snow precipitation as snow for previous 24 hour period
Precip On Ground depth of snow on ground at time of observation
Fog occurence of fog for the observation period
Ice Pellets occurence of ice pellets for the observation period
Glaze occurence of glaze (freezing rain) for the observation period
