Comment: Added three new parameters - wind_min_past1h, temp_max_past12h, temp_min_past12h

The parameters available for download are listed below along with a description and the unit of the parameter.

*In Greenland the precipitation is at some locations measured manually once a day. Once a month DMI receives the data, whereafter the data will be available through our API-services.There can be some instances where precipitation has not been measured daily for different reasons. There can therefore be instances, where a measurement can cover the accumulated precipitation of more than a day. A way to detect whether a measurement covers more than one day's accumulated precipitation, if there are not any data for the previous day(s). 


**Some stations in Greenland only send data on an hourly basis.
