Just wanted to share a component to query monthly Rainfall data that can be quite useful for climate analysis. It came out after some headaches for remote locations in tropical climates, where the EPWs did not contain anything regarding rainfall.
I´ve used historical monthly rainfall data from the The National Center for Atmospheric Research here during 1986-2005. The component requests the appropiate data according to the location, which is downloaded in a .csv format and read back into Grasshopper.
Ideally, there should be a way to find hourly data, but so far I haven´t found it.
It is not rocket science, but might be helpful for someone
As I´m learning python, the coding is nowhere close to Ladybug standards. Any corrections or improvements are most welcomed.
