I just tried plotting 6-hour forecast ETA grids from today and did not experience the label problem you are reporting. >Same thing happens for other forecast times from the same run. >Could GRDDISP calculate the fcst time wrong? I guess that it could, but I wonder why the problem isn't consistent. What happens when you try to plot a forecast grid from today's ETA GRID file: MAP NA GRDDISP RTGRIDS/ETA.5 NAV=F TDAY=CAL PAR=Z LEV=700 Tom >From address@hidden Tue Apr 4 12:47:54 2000 re: MAP NA GRDDISP RTGRIDS/ETA.5 NAV=F TDAY=CAL PAR=Z LEV=700 >I ran these two commands, and the label is wrong: > VALID 03 APR/00Z Yikes!
