To: All NOMADS users of Global (GFS) Ensemble data:

The following is from an email describing the changes that take place to the NWS (NCEP) Operational ensemble posted production files. These changes take place on

May 31, 2006. NOMADS, the non operational real time prototype, will (must) change its Ensemble holdings accordingly: replacing the directories ens and ens1x1 with ensemble gens files, new real time ensemble data described below on and
We will no longer have real time holdings of the 2.5 degree ensembles. After a time we will remove the ens (2.5 degree) directories which will be replaced by gens files. This will be done on as well as servers.
