Modelling storm surge

Hi Everybody,
I am pretty new in Delft3D . I am trying to model a nested hydrodynamic and sediment transport model coupled with wave. I would like my model to include storm surge. I have a couple of questions:
1. Other than space time varying wind data, do I need to add pressure as well in order to capture storm surge accurately?2. I have a large computational domain and I could just find some atmospheric pressure data which will be located in downstream of my model (coarse grid) however I don't have any pressure data in the estuary where I have a finer grid and local effect. Is there any resource I can find the atmospheric pressures?
3. If I want to use space varying wind on the computational domain, how can I input multiple meteo stations into to the model. Can I use multiple .wnd files or I need to interpolate all of them into one file?
Thank you in advance!

Thank you so much for this. I was into this issue and tired to   tinker around to check if its possible but couldnt get it done. Now that i have seen the way you did it, thanks guys
