GRIB File Source

by Capt Major » Wed Feb 08, 2017 9:15 pm

Does anyone have or know of a free GRIB file internet source that includes wind and waves?

I know you can get a GRIB file from NOAA, but you have to figure out the mysteries of accessing, identifying and downloading the selected data. I ain't that smart or patient.

gribot@globalmarinenet.net offers a free file that has to be extracted and only provides wind vectors on a 50km grid density.

So any help in finding real GRIB (.grb) files would be greatly appreciated.

Zygrib, gives all of this data and can be imported into OpenCPN, to view with your charts.

How about a link to ocean currents? I can only find pay services.

Thanks!
