We have a development THREDDS server that seems to have the data
you need. You should be able to use the following url in your script
to get the data (modify for date and time, of course):

dods://motherlode.ucar.edu:9080/thredds/dodsC/grib/NCEP/NDFD/CONUS_5km_conduit/files/NDFD_CONUS_5km_conduit_YYYYMMDD_HHMM.grib2

Let me know if this works for you.  Cheers!

Sean
