The number of columns, data format and the units of the various weather parameters required for the input file are shown in the table below.
UCD (max. 3 columns)
-70 to 50
0 to 1800
DATE - use yyyy-mm-dd format;
TEMP - average daily air temperature [°C];
TOTP - daily total precipitation [mm];
UCD - user calibration data (up to three columns; leave blank if no data is available)
The tool requires daily data
The user input data file has to be uploaded using a file with 1 column dedicated to calendar date, 2 columns dedicated to required input data (TEMP, TOTP) and 3 columns reserved for optional user calibration data (UCD1 to UCD3)
Use the first row of the data set for column headings
SNOWFALL BUDDY includes several input data integrity and quality check routines; however, the user is advised to thoroughly check the input dataset before uploading it to the tool to minimize the risk for erroneous output
Consult section 3.1. and section 3.3. for more details.

Select the UCD averaging method
In order to perform averaging for the various intervals, the tool calculates the monthly average using two methods:
Daily Average - the monthly average is the average of daily values (e.g. method used for Temperature)
Daily Sum - the monthly average is the sum of daily values (e.g. method used for Precipitation)
