hello. I\'m a new one in this project, and i\'ve noticed that there\'s 30 days in February in every year in every WU.. And if computer is working on unit in which it\'s trying to predict the climate from 1810 to 2050 - there can appear a mistake in 200-250 days. Is it correct? Or am I wrong? :)

Hi, Skvozik

There is nothing wrong. There are 30 days in every month. There are also only 360 days in each year. That’s just the way the models work. Happy crunching.
