WRFEMS Version 126.96.36.199.23 has been unleashed to the masses, just in time for NWP modeling season! Was version 188.8.131.52.19 keeping you down? No worries, because the new release is everything you expect from free software developed with no budget and without support. Consequently, this release will probably keep you down as well, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the fruits of my labor.

Bgruven version 12.9.2 has been released to to fix a number of "unplanned design features" including any problems that arise from overly ambitious, yet still loved, users running multiple Bgruven processes at once. A sense of calm has once again returned to Bgruvenville.
18 September 2012 Now Available NAWIPS 6.7 - It's Baaaaaaack!
After capitulating to the ever-growing demand (from 0 to 1 request), I've decided to resurrect the long-neglected STRC support of NAWIPS. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I've compiled the most recent NAWIPS release (V6.7) and placed it on the STRC site:
It you read anything this year, be sure that it is the nawips_install.README file.
This release may be used to replace the version included as part of the EMS or as a stand-alone installation. You have the power - use it wisely.
21 August 2012 BUFRgruven Version 12.8.1 is unleashed!!
Bgruven version 12.8.1 has been released to support the August 21st SREF implementation. There is an all new suit of ensemble members with greater diversity in the model initial conditions and physics configurations. The total number of members has been increased to 21 plus an additional ensemble mean data set. Additionally, a new NMM-B member family has been invited to the party.
23 Apr 2012 EMS Adaptive Time Step Fix - Update Available! 31 Jan 2012 The SOO STRC data server is undergoing re-vitalization
The data archive on the primary STRC server, soostrc.comet.ucar.edu, is being reorganized to better serve the SOO community. When completed, the on-line archive of operational model data in GRIB 2 and BUFR formats will increase with more direct access to the files for local modeling and research.
While the mass data migration is underway, there may be periods when your favorite archived data set is unavailable. But fret not data miner, as your missing nugget shall be returned to the site in the near future.
This process should not impact the real-time data flow. At least that is the plan.
