It is. NOAA has more means of the data distribution. We are using NOMADS server and it still have problems now. They are writing update to the mailing list every day. If the problem persist tomorrow, we will try to rewrite our system to the other distribution.

RE: NAM Updates
RE: US - NAM data outage
It seems that NAM is still unavailable. Message from NOAA mailing list this morning:
"The data center network maintenance that took place on 10/22 has caused many unexpected issues. Beginning early today our system admins began to troubleshoot reports of both the Opendap and Grib Filter services being unresponsive. Unfortunately, with the complexity of the issues within the data center, the team was unable to restore the services. At this time, both OpenDap and Grib Filter services are down. We will continue to persevere through this incredibly impactful outage and work as quickly as we can to recover NOMADS. "
NOAA provides another means to download the NAM model. We will wait a while and if the problems with NOMADS servers persist we will rewrite our systems to the other data distribution.
