This is my first time using this dataset, so I have probably made an elementary mistake. I am having trouble understanding a file from the NCDC's climate normal dataset:
Here is a sample of a few rows from the above file:
From the documentation:
ann-snwd-avgnds-ge010wi.txt Long-term averages of number of days during the year with snow depth >= 10 inches
From the readme and the above, I am assuming that the numerical portions of the entries in the second column in the above sample should all be numbers of days per year, so at most 367. However, some of the values listed above are greater than 367.
Any ideas for me, or other places to look? Did I miss any threads on this forum that discuss how idiots can understand NCDC data?
