It would help if you know the kind of format.  My guess is that it 
should be netCDF, but if you can tell us which extension do have these 
files it would be better.  Also, if you are on a Unix system, trying 
the next command out:

$ file your_data_file

should tell you the format of the file (if it is known enough).

In case it is a netCDF file (either v3 or v4), you can use the netCDF4 
python module:

HTH,
