CPC Global Daily Temperature

CPC Global Maximum and Minimum Daily Temperature

This data set is used for verification by NOAA/CPC and is on a 0.5x0.5 degree grid. The data is global GTS data and is gridded using the Shepard Algorithm. The values are the max/min for 6Z-6Z.

Note: the daily average temperature can be generated from tmax and tmin by adding the values together and dividing by 2.

Data are missing on the following dates (yyyymmdd): 19810101, 19810102, 19830426, 19830427, 19830428, 19830429, 19830430, 19840107, 19850107, 19850108, 19850206, 19850112, 19850113, 19850116, 19850119, 19850101, 19850810, 19850717, 19860104, 19860328, 19860920, 19861114, 19861121, 19920731
