Does anybody have a DEF file of NOAA's TMY hourly CSV format for the EnergyPlus WeatherConverter? Or some other way to convert between the two? NOAA just released an updated set of TMY data yesterday (2021-05-04), and I'm curious to see how it affects local modelling.

Note: these are not TMY files. will be posting the normals in our next publish cycle (which will include NCEI/ISD data through 2020 and satellite solar data). The normals have several ranges: 1981-2010, 1991-2020, and 2006-2020. We expect to post the new data by the end of December 2021.
