Users, Work continues at the Boulder data center as we recover from yesterday's outage. Restoring NOMADS is the top priority and we hope to bring it back online within the next few hours. Thank you for your patience,

All, The maintenance window needed to be extended which has prolonged the outage of the NOMADS website. Engineers are currently bringing our servers back online and we hope to have NOMADS back on line in the next few hours. Thank you for your patience while we perform this work.

All, We are no longer able to maintain the NOMADS website and it will be going off-line as previously advertised ( https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/pdf2/scn20-118nomads_outageaaac.pdf) . We will work to have it up and running again once the maintenance is completed. We are expecting ~22/07Z but will notify if the outage window is extended.

At this time we are able to keep the NOMADS site up through the planned maintenance; however, users should know the site may still need to be brought down at any point during the maintenance.

but i am not sure if understand what you meaning (I do not know English very well), because some sites like wetterzentrale, windguru, meteologix (except Windy and Ventusky with no updates) and with grib files i still continue to receive uninterrupted (i think meteologix had some blank hours without update yesterday) all the new update times and data until now from GFS, with the new data is very near with new weather real life data in southern Europe regnion, this updates is not correct?
@panosrunner I believe the updates indicate the main source for these data feeds is unavailable right now, but there are other ways of accessing the data. Windy may be using the method that is unavailable and are just waiting for it to become available again instead of changing their data source. Other sites may be pulling in the same data from a method that remains available, such as ftp.
Ok, i think now better understand what happen.... thanks :-)

NOMADS users, We have restored enough of the data center to bring the NOMADS website back up. We are now populating data in real time. However, all of the features of NOMADS are not fully healthy yet. We are still actively restoring the site to full and will send an all clear once that is complete. Due to the extensive outage we will be unable to backfill any of the data gaps. Thank you for your patience. Carissa Klemmer NCEP Central Operations IDSB Branch Chief 301-683-3835

Users, We continue to work to resolve these issues as quickly as we can. We will stop sending updates until we have a better estimate for restoration. Please remember that we offer all our nomads data through our FTPPRD web site as well. Thanks for your patience. Anne Myckow

Hello users, We had teams working through the night and they have been unable to overcome all of the remaining issues within the data center. At this time NOMADS is up and serving data, but users will experience frequent errors. A retry should result in a successful download. We continue to work to restore the site and will notify when all is clear.
The most accurate updates with less errors at the moment for Southeast Europe if some one need the GFS via websites until the problem is over, come from meteociel.fr for 3h forecast, personally i use the Windy most, but if problem come, i use also other sites and GRΙΒ files via XyGrib, i say that for help some people who need GFS model anyway (like me).... i hope the problem to finish soon and will see the GFS in favourite Windy also.... have fun and stay safe. :-)
