Dataset Description Global Surface Summary of the Day is a product produced by the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), and is derived from the synoptic/hourly observations contained in the Integrated Surface Hourly (ISH) dataset (DSI-3505). The latest daily summary data are normally available 1-2 days after the date-time of the observations used in the daily summaries, and over 9000 worldwide stations' data are available. Daily elements (as available) include mean values of temperature, dew point, sea level and station pressures, visibility, and wind speed plus maximum sustained wind speed and/or wind gusts, maximum and minimum temperature, precipitation amounts, snow depth, and indicators for occurrences of various weather elements. ?
