The weather data database (<%WEATHERDB%>) database contains all the weather information that is used by the ManagingEnergy application.  It contains two separate types of weather data.  NCDC current weather data from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and WYEC2, typical mean year data from ASHRAE and Environment Canada.  The mean year data is used to generate a typical year of weather information whereas the NCDC weather data is used to run comparisons against existing conditions.
