White Box Technologies announced the release of a new set of  21st Century “typical year” weather files for 224 Canadian locations. These CN2014 weather files were produced using the same raw data source, i.e., NCEI’s (formerly NCDC) Integrated Surface Hourly Database (ISD), and software that were used in creating the IWEC2 weather files. The 224 locations represents all the Canadian stations in the ISD with at least eight years of data over the 15-year period 2000-2014 of sufficient data  quality to create hourly weather files.  Since the CWEC2 weather files were based largely on the period 1960-1989, the CN2014 weather files should provide an interesting contrast and answer whether there’s been significant changes in Canada’s climate over the past 25 years.
The CN2014 weather files are available either as an entire set of 224, in *.BINM or *.epw format, or in both plus a *.FIN4 text format, or as individual files that comes in all three formats
