Regarding a possible issue with the new meteofrance_1.tab and meteofrance_2.tab grib tab resource files within the grib-8.0.jar.
Line item 65, i.e.
65:WEASD:Accum. snow [kg/m^2]
I believe that the period after Accum is causing problems with OPeNDAP and NetcdfSubset access methods.
While reading a grib type MFA SURFA dataset with OPeNDAP the Accum._Snow variable attributes were showing up within global attributes.
In NetcdfSubset the Accum._Snow variable won't render without an 403 error stating that Accum._Snow isn't a netcdf variable or sometimes with just a content encoding error.
Here's the wgrib dump of what should be the Accum_snow variable within the MFA SURFA dataset.
After removing the period from the meteofrance grib tab tables both errors were resolved while testing on our development server.
