Which meteorological drought indices just use daily data for calculating that index

There are two important meteorological drought indices that it is essential to use daily data for calculating them, namely EDI (Effective Drought Index) and KBDI (Keetch-Byram Drought Index) more info:KBDI Drought paper. For both of them you should use daily data for calculating the amount of meteorological drought.
