Error downloading grib

Postby Nortud » Wed Nov 28, 2012 9:32 pm

Sometimes, and particulary this evening, I can't download winds.
I have this message :
Error downloading C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp192.grb
téléchargement interrompu.
Can you explain me ?
Thanks and sorry for my poor english.

NOAA gribs are added gradually while their super computer spits forecasts.
You probably tried to download a fresh forecast, and it was not ready.
Try to shorten the number of hours (p.e. 180) when this happens.

it looks like NOAA delivers data above 180hrs only twice a day.
I download at 5:00 - 11:00 - 17:00 - 23 :00 GMT and only 11:00 and 23:00 can go above 180hrs....
see this good VRTool wiki for detailled explanations about NOAA : http://www.tecepe.com.br/wiki/index.php?title=NOAAWinds
