Summary of the Day Observations - Misawa Japan

Summary of the Day Observations - Misawa Japan is a collection of data summarizing daily weather observations taken at Misawa Naval Air Station, near the north end of the main Japanese island of Honshu. It consists of a single ASCII file containing the period of record 9 April 1948 through 31 December 1971. Elements include daily rainfall, snowfall, snow depth, snow water equivalent, humidity, maximum/minimum/mean temperature, peak wind gust/direction/time, and number of hours in which fog was present.
