Convert the station records into the monthly format

The station files store all the station data (observations and metadata) but they are not ideal as a source format for gridding. A gridder needs all the data for one month, which is spread over thousands of station files. To provide a better source, the CRUTEM3 system uses monthly files, each of which lists att the station observations for one month. The monthly files are updated whenever the station files are updated.

This script makes the monthly fiules from the station files.
