GFS : migration from version 14 to 15.1

Dear all,

A change within the GFS data will occur on next june (https://www.weather.gov/media/notificat ... _v15_1.pdf) : it seems that these change lead to a failure of the WRF runs : "error in ext_pkg_write_field" message obtained during the first step of the WRF run when reading these new data.

Does anyone know if it will be requested to apply a fix in our codes (Vtable.GFS/namelist/…) ?

Thanks a lot,
Florent.

Have you found a solution to your problem?
it seems that WPS V4 is required.

For while you can find GFS old format data at https://para.nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/d ... /gfs/para/ but I don't know until when.
