Weather Import (CW Analyzer)

Weather Import is a weather import utility to update daily historical weather files for use with WinEPIC and WinAPEX from a web-based weather station network or user-collected weather data. It also allows a user to create and update his/her own long-term weather file for anywhere in the world. Once weather data is formatted into a EPIC/APEX format via the Weather Filter feature, the data can be scanned for missing days/data and edited with the weather data editor. The Weather Import interface operates in both Metric and English units.

Adobe Reader needs to be installed before running the Weather Import.
