I am sorry, but the best you can do is to ask the data provider, not us. 

However, if the data is meteorological, I am pretty sure that
you should do nothing at all to convert to WGS84 long/lat. 

For other kinds of data, some transformation may be needed,
perhaps converting from geocentric to geodetic latitude. But
only your own data provider can tell you what you must do.
