did you find any solution ?
 
Please clarify your issues, what data you ungrib, which version of WPS you use, etc. Without these information, it is hard to tell what is wrong....
 
Please download the GFS data from RDA archive, then run officially released WPS to process the data.
GFS data have been well tested and there shouldn't have any issues.
if you still experience problems, please upload your namelist.wps for me to take a look.
 
Dear Chen,

Thanks for the response!

When I use a different dataset, ds083.2, it works fine with the same WPS version. However, the problem only occurs with the GFS dataset. The issue appears with past GFS data, while the current data (e.g., today's dataset) works fine.

Please download the GFS data from RDA archive, then run officially released WPS to process the data.
GFS data have been well tested and there shouldn't have any issues.
if you still experience problems, please upload your namelist.wps for me to take a look.
