Hello,
We are noticing in our analysis that several fields have values equal to '"T". I pulled a year's worth of data around the Wichita, Kansas area and found that the following fields all have some "T" values:
snowfallm
snowfalli
monthtodatesnowfallm
monthtodatesnowfalli
since1julsnowfallm
since1julsnowfalli
snowdepthm
snowdepthi
precipm
precipi

What does "T" mean? Is this a weather specific value? A typo? Does it mean 0 or null? Please let us know, we're very curious!

Thanks!

I'd also like to know what "T" means. Here is an example that has some:

"dailysummary": [
{
"date": {
"pretty": "12:00 PM EST on November 11, 2011",
"year": "2011",
"mon": "11",
"mday": "11",
"hour": "12",
"min": "00",
"tzname": "America/New_York"
},
"fog": "0",
"rain": "0",
"snow": "0",
"snowfallm": "T",
"snowfalli": "T",

It means "trace" or that rain or snow fell, but was not measurable
