The GFS is now available out to 8 days via Saildocs. Presumably, you will bring zyGrib into line.
From today, if you choose a duration of 7 days, in practice you receive a 8 days file. Download dialog box will be updated in next release.
However I'm not sure that these 8 days forecasts are really usable.
Do yo know when?
Whatever the subject, I never know when...
I suggest that it would be convenient if it were possible to use the arrow keys for time-steps. One could then leave the mouse pointer fixed and easily read off changes at a point while advancing in time.
You have to try "Page up/down"... but I just discover a new bug: data are not correctly updated on the board, so you have to slightly move the mouse... will be fixed in next release... no, I don't know when
From weatheronlin.co.uk, I see that the UK Met Office is making some GRIB data available on the internat - although only to 60 hours. Is there any possibility that you might approach the UK, noting the data already on weatheronline and explore the possibility of having UKMO Global data as an alternative to the GFS. They are, I understand, of a comparable standard with the UK slightly the better at present. In practice, I suspect that differences on any specific occasion are likely to be due to differences at the data analysis/assimilation stage rather than in the models themselves.
Why not take a look, if you found information about the recovery of data.
The GFS, like the UKMO now uses a grid about 1/4 degree but only makes data available on a 1/2 degree grid. Do you know of any plans to make data available on the 1/4 degree or. maybe, somewhere between the two - say 1/3 degree?
I don't know.
