[python #XHB-668184]: SHARPpy question


Thanks for reaching out to our Python support team, Iâll be glad to help out! 
I see youâre asking about data availability and access for getting 
atmospheric profiles from any model grid point as opposed to specific forecast 
soundings like provided for BUFKIT. If you want to be able to grab a profile 
from any single NWS NCEP model field (eg GFS, NAM, RAP) check out NCEIâs 
THREDDS server (https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/thredds/model/model.html). Here you 
could access your chosen output file via the NetcdfSubset service (NCSS) and 
select a single lat, lon point to pull out a profile of winds at different 
levels. You can similarly do the same for high-resolution HRRR output from our 
own THREDDS server 
 or access HRRR archives from the University of Utah 
(http://home.chpc.utah.edu/~u0553130/Brian_Blaylock/hrrr_FAQ.html), though 
youâll have to be handier with GRIB for this archive. Importantly howe
 ver, note that any of these above will only have recorded output at the 
original levels distributed, so vertical spacing will be *much* lower (eg every 
25 hPa) than forecast soundings.

If you already have the data you need or have more specific questions about 
reading these into SHARPpy, donât hesitate to follow up and let me know! I 
can try to point you in the right direction.

All the best,
