Thanks for the note about Z_sfc mistake. It's been corrected and it's
available on the ftp decoders space.

You may not be the right person, but I've noticed an error in the
schema of the ruc netcdf file you sent me: the dimensions for terrain
float Z_sfc(record, y, x) ;
Z_sfc:long_name = "terrain" ;
Z_sfc:units = "gp m" ;
Z_sfc:_FillValue = -9999.0 ;
Z_sfc:navigation = "nav" ;
I say "wrong" because I don't think terrain is a function of forecast
hour....either that, or the RUC is _quite_ the model...
