In October 2007 it was discovered that the DECADAL files for Vapour Pressure (VAP) and
Wet Days (WET) had been presented as each other. That is, the decadal files for VAP
actually contained WET, and vice-versa.
THE FULL LENGTH FILES (1901-2002) ARE UNAFFECTED BY THIS.
The decadal files for VAP and WET have been taken offline. There are no plans to
Apologies for any problems this causes.

The data are provided in two alternative sets of files:
1. 102-year files (*1901-2002*), one per variable: see data_all directory.
2. 10-year files, ten per variable: see data_dec directory.
The station counts are also provided in two alternative sets of files:
1. 100-year files (*1901-2000*), one per variable: see stn_all directory.
2. 10-year files, ten per variable: see stn_dec directory.
The variables included are only those for which station data was directly
used in the calculation of month-by-month anomalies. Therefore frost-day
frequency (based entirely on synthetic data) and temperature min/max
(deduced entirely from the completed dtr and tmp grids) are not presented.
The underlying climatology (1961-90 mean) is provided in the same format
in the 'normal' directory. Areas without genuine estimates take values
that are 'relaxed' towards this climatology.
