[bldg-sim] Weather File

A few years ago, I attempted to use Meteonorm to create/adjust weather 
files for a high desert location in Arizona. That generation of 
Meteonorm always created files with much smaller diurnal temperature 
swings than the reference desert city. The humidities may not have been 
in an appropriate range either. We could not find any way to drive 
Meteonorm to produce reasonable outputs, and did not get any suggestions 
back from the developers. Perhaps Meteonorm is too Euro-centric to deal 
with our desert, or perhaps this problem was fixed in the version used 
to create the E+ files.
