With today's implementation of the GFS upgrades, the 500 and 1000 hPa height
anomaly grids are no longer part of the output. This was advertised in the NWS
Technical Implementation Notice, so it is not a surprise ... but up till now,
we made use of these grids in our web products.
Does anyone know of another quick-and-easy online source of either anomaly or
mean grids for these two height levels? I can put something together via the
CFSR, but that will take a wee bit of time ...
