Random occurrence of 2000-01-01 12:00:00 in ungrib log


New member
Hi there,

even though I am preprocessing data for 2018, ungrib randomly mentions 2000-01-01 12:00:00 in its log. I am not seeing any files which are created additionally to the dates I'm interested in, but I hope this does not affect the data in my intermediate FILE:* files.

Please find the ungrib log attached.

Do you possibly have an older (or other) input data file linked to your WPS directory when running ungrib? Regardless, if you were able to get all the ungribbed files you need, and you are able to run metgrid without any issues, this should not be a problem, moving forward.
