(Low) - Minimum temperature. This is the lowest temperature (°F) recorded for the calendar day.
(AVG) - Average temperature. The sum of the previous two columns, divided by 2, and rounded, gives the value for this column.

(PCPN) - Precipitation (Water Equivalent). This is the amount of liquid precipitation, in inches, to the nearest hundredth, that has fallen during the calendar day. If frozen or freezing precipitation (snow, sleet, freezing rain, etc.) falls, it is melted and added to the total of any liquid precipitation.
