The data set contains the daily statistics for the TMP2m variable (2-m above ground temperature) of the North American Land Data Assimilation System Version 2 (NLDAS-2) model. The period of analysis is from 1979-01-02 to 2013-12-31. The statistics for each calendar month are the mean, standard deviation, minimum, maximum, and percentiles in 0.05 interval. The data set also includes a p-value per calendar day of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) test. The p-value of the KS test shows if the computed empirical cumulative distribution function (CDF) comes from a fitted normal distribution
