The occupancy schedules associated with the ResStock EULP tmy3 run appear to start on a Monday but the OS:YearDescription object in the osm files has the "Day of Week for Start Day" as Sunday.

It seems to me that with detailed hourly schedules defined the start day will not effect anything but I just wanted to verify that the EULP tmy3 runs (or the schedules anyway) start on a Monday.

It also looks like the individual time series data for the TMY run start 1/1/2018 which is a Monday

@willyJohan, where are you seeing "Day of Week for Start Day" as Sunday? We just pulled an OSM and that field is blank--see

@Eric Wilson, Hmm, when i go back to the zipped OSMs I originally downloaded that field is blank as well. I did open the OSMs I was working with in the OS App, is it possible it auto-populated that field when I saved in the app? Sorry for the wild goose chase.

Answered in FAQ here:

Both the 2018 and typical meteorological weather data years start with Monday, Jan. 1.

Thanks for letting us know about the OS:YearDescription object.
