This paper discusses the creation of standard weather data files covering the whole of New Zealand. As part of this process we describe the development of a method for selecting extreme weeks of data. This provides the simulationist with a set of weather patterns which test a building's performance under the one-percentile most demanding conditions to be found at a particular location.
