Dear WRF community,

we're trying to ungrib CFSR surface and presssure levels subset data using wrf ungrib.exe, but we could only read one data at 06:00 every 5 days.
For example, in the file flxf06.gdas.19790101-19790105.grb2 the ungrib just read data at 1979-01-01 06:00. The same is ocurring when we read the file with g2print.exe, it just reads from flxf06.gdas.19790101-19790105.grb2 the 1979-01-01 06:00 data.
We wrote to, but he told us this is a WPS problem, not the data.
How could we read these files?

CFSR data is on a Gaussian grid, and unfortunately WPS is not capable of processing subset data on this type of grid. In order to use CFSR, you'll need to download the global dataset.
