2021-06-24 12:57:13 -0600 marked best answer Generating weather file from one year measured data

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing well and safe.

I'm trying to create an epw file out of real data to be used in an energyplus simulation. I have pasted my one year hour by hour outdoor air and solar data into the "Elements" tool and generated an epw file. I've also adjusted the location related inputs in Elements. To validate that, I have then used the file to run a simulation and output the outdoor conditions. They don't match, for example here is the site outdoor air temperature compared with my raw data. Temperatures compared

I would appreciate it if I can get some hints on that procedure. Thanks in advance
