In Response To: Forecast hours for RUC (Scott Dennstaedt)
This is a fair point. Unfortunately, NCEP has been unable to expand its ftp capacity to allow access to 4,5,6,7,8,9 hour forecast gridded data from the RUC non-3h initial time runs (e.g., 01z, 02z, 04z, 05z...). The RUC BUFR output soundings do contain the full hourly 9-h forecasts on an hourly basis, if that is any consolation. NCEP is working on expanding output of full forecast duration on these hourly runs.
I've changed the RUC web page comment to reflect this situation.
