Dear ikemitsu !
If I correctly understand, you want learn weather data on Dyatlov pass during events? But data only on of Burmantovo meteorological station will not give any helpful information. Weather on the pass differs even that is in 20 km from it much. To Burmantovo meteorological station there is a distance is ~65 km on straight line, the difference in height of arrangement of places makes more semi-kilometer (> 500 metres). In addition it is necessary consider that the arrangement of Burmantovo meteorological station to the east from pass creates
difference in temperature (there colder on the average) and smaller wind speeds.
For example, in January 2015 when we measured speed of wind and temperature on pass, we received (on the average) to nearby-20C …-25C and a wind from 15 to 30 m/s, and the weather archive gives on the average-4C …-20C and wind speed 2 … 3 m/s.
Unfortunately still there is no sufficient statistics of weather on pass that would be possible even on several (I took 9) meteorological stations (both with east, and from West side from Main Ural Ridge), extrapolation method receive truthful enough picture weather for the period of events.
With some share of confidence it is possible  consider that at that time on place where there was tent there was wind speed about 15 … 18 m/s and temperature nearby-15C …-18C. On cedar place, wind practically was not present, and the temperature could be-20C …-24C.
The information about weather on February, 01st and 02 1959 can be found, for example, on site of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).
