Are there any scripts available to convert netcdf data to a format that metgrid can read? ERA5 on the RDA is in NC format, and the grib format is on HPSS so very slow to transfer/use.


I am sorry that we don't have such utility. However, you can always read the netCDF data, then write out files in intermediate format.metgrid can always read data in that format.
I don't think CDO/NCO can convert netCDF to intermediate format. You will need to create a code to read the netCDF data, then write out in intermediate format. Unfortunately we don't have such a utility at hand now.
