I have been watching the graphics on this project, and I found something very ODD February has 30 days. As far as I can recall This month has had only 28 days except for leap year when it has 29 for about 2000 years now if not longer.

What gives???

Climate models have a 360 day year, composed of 12 months, each of 30 days.
This makes the statistics easier.
