Anyone have a source for US Grib data, particularly ETA and RUC data, for Windows based computer.

I can find the NCEP website with all sorts of files, but what EXACT url is needed for use with DAWS. DO I download a particular GFS file, or particular directory?

Thanks a bunch in advance, trying to experiment with DAWS and Grib data....

Try ftp://ftpprd.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/eta/prod/

However, be advised that the GRIB module is belly up right now. At least it is on mine.(V1.0d)

Hope this helps.

Close... but which file??? I see bufr and tiles subdirectories as well as gz files, tm files, and a few imssnow files that seem to be .grb files. The specific file or files is what I cant figure out.

Thanks again.

The eta.t**z.awp211**.tm00 files were used and tested earlier. But, as I said, right now(V1.0d) the GRIB module is not operational. At least, not with this particular series of files. Perhaps it works with others, but I have not tried testing them.
