Activity Planner

Description:

This routine creates a product containing daily maximum temperature (degrees F), minimum temperature (degrees F), precipitation (inches), new snowfall (inches) and depth of snow on the ground (inches) for the same day for a series of years. These variables are displayed for a selected station, date and range of years. The user also has the option to display the recorded maximum temperature for the day or use the maximum temperature recorded on the following day. The latter option is useful for weather stations that employ a morning time of observation. Precipitation, snowfall and snow depth may show a value of "Trace". Asterisks (***) indicate missing data.

The data table is preceded by the standard headers and followed by several lines of summary statistics. These summary statistics include the temperature extremes and percent of years that certain temperature, precipitation, and snowfall thresholds are exceeded.
