#'Calculate the group 3 IHA parameters.
#'The group 3 IHA parameters measure the timing of annual extreme water conditions.
#'These metrics will differ from TNC metrics where the minimum or maximum occurs during a leap year after
#'february 28th.  The TNC software seems to assume that all years are leap years.
#'So if the minium for a year is Mar 1 of a non-leap year, this code will return 60,
#'whereas the TNC sofware returns 61.
#'@inheritParams group5
#'@param mimic.tnc should the function perform the calculation like the TNC IHA software?
#'@return a matrix of the group 3 parameters
