The thing is I have my data only in Excel so I don't know how to convert it for Hysplit use. I would really appreciate if you could help me with it

We do not support conversion of excel files into ARL format.
You can either use the stn2arl utility described in the tutorial

https://www.ready.noaa.gov/documents/Tu ... enter.html

or you can write your own conversion utility. You can find more information about
the format of the meteorological files in the following link.
