Hi did anybody manage to view the HWRF files from NCEP hur directory , correctly ?

Seems like PCgridds32/wingridds does not recognize the layout of the grib.
The plan output does not look right when one displays the data.

Looks like the same problem pcgridds32 had/has when you try to decode NWW3.

Unfortunately the files are grib2 format so one cant use pcgrads implace of pcgridds32

The file I was looking at was dean04l.2007081718.hwrfprs_p.grb2f00

Uhh...yup! Their messed up! Both dean04l.2007082012.hwrfprs_n.grb2f00 and dean04l.2007082012.hwrfprs_p.grb2f00 have problems in scalar & vector info. Seems the only thing correct are the Lat & Lon lines...

I cannot guarantee (sp?) a quick fix but thanks for the heads-up.
