In Response To: GFS (Guy Corbett)

Hi Guy, and others who have expressed dismay that GFS soundings are not currently available at https://rucsoundings.noaa.gov/.

Unfortunately, a very large and growing number of apparently automated requests for GFS soundings have caused the load on our web server to become so great that periodically no one was able to get soundings of any kind.

Because the primary load appears to be from GFS sounding requests, and because the GFS model files are relatively large and cause substantial load on our disk farms, thereby affecting all our in-lab colleagues, we decided to -- perhaps temporarily -- disable GFS soundings.

Over the contiguous United States, "Op40" soundings (from our RAP model) remain available.

We're investigating ways whereby we might be able once again to make GFS soundings available. But, because this is not our primary (i.e. funded) mission, this may not happen quickly.

We're sorry for this outage and will try to find a way to provide them in the future. If and when we do, we'll announce it on this forum and at https://rucsoundings.noaa.gov/.

-Bill
