I am doing some data analytics on weather data. At first I wanted to process epw files but then I realized that it is already done and available as .stat files. The problem though is to extract data from these files. I used regex for a few variables, but it is just too much time consuming. Does anyone have a better solution to parse these files preferably to csv or json? If the source code for the weather.exe is available somewhere, I could modify it to save the output as csv or json format.

If you are looking at US TMY3 weather files you can download them in .CSV format HERE

Thank you Lyle for your answer. I have switched to using ddy and found all the csv files in the energyplus installation directory.
