Basic climatic data is needed for a wide variety of applications. Values for temperatures, rainfall, snow, and wind are required for initial site analysis. Other information is useful for heat loss calculations, passive solar design, and daylighting. The following table summarizes most of the climate information you need on a day-to-day basis for a wide spectrum of locations across the United States. Refer to Table 3.12 for additional data.
