[Met_help] Information about accumulation precipitation

As of METv2.0 at least, Point-Stat can in fact read the NetCDF output of the PCP-Combine tool.  If you're using an older version of MET, I'd suggest upgrading to METv2.0.

Please let me know where you read that information about Point-Stat.  If it was in the current version of the MET User's Guide (for METv2.0), then that's incorrect, and we'll need to update it.

Sorry for the confusion!
