Looks like the issue is probably the time range you've selected. It took
me a few minutes to see this but the second set of grids does not have a
zero hour time. Try starting with the 3hr forecast on the second group
and see if that helps. I guess you'll have to make two seperate requests
as I don't see a way to select two different time ranges.

Again, looks like a time range issue. The first set of grids starts with
the 192hr forecast and the second set with the 22hr forecast.

I don't think the problem is with the lat/lon stuff, just time. So, I'm
guessing what you got is for the area your interested in. If when you
look at it, it doesn't seem right, please let us know.

Hope this helps.
