[CONDUIT #QBE-263069]: testing new additions to CONDUIT

Hi Brendon,

Excellent, thanks!

I ran into this discrepancy also.  I will look into it more.

Yup, I was a bit surprised also.

OK, thanks for your insight into what may or may not be useful now.

OK.  Michael has played around with most, if not all, of the new products in
GEMPAK 5.11.4e here at the UPC.

The BIG question for you is if the current set of NDFD test products contains
the fields that you were interested in when you expressed an interest in
1-3 day NDFD forecasts in a CONDUIT survey?

FYI, we will be asking the other user(s) that expressed a desire for NDFD
data additions to CONDUIT what his(their) views are.
