On the scanned pages there are many columns with data, including temperature, precipitation, pressure, and wind.
To begin with, we would like your help with station metadata ('data about the data'), and temperature data from 8 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 9 in the evening. More stations and weather parameters will be released later.
