METplus v2.1 Release Notes:

Configuration:

  • Added gather_by_date.conf for grid-to-grid and grid-to-obs use cases

  • Created specific directory for plotting use case config files

  • Added error checking so it is more clear what config items need to be added or changed to run

  • Renamed many config variables for clarity

    • Variables specific to a wrapper will contain the app name in the variable name

    • Error message at startup listing all deprecated config items and the suggested new item to use

  • MET configuration files updated to contain new default values that were recently added

  • Current time environment variables set to be used in MET or METplus config files if needed (See section describing Timing Control).

  • Added INIT_SEQ for looping by valid time to calculate forecast lead list (instead of specifying with LEAD_SEQ)

  • Adding window begin and end variables for individual wrappers instead of having the same window for every wrapper (See OBS_WINDOW_BEGIN and OBS_WINDOW_END in section describing A-Z Config Glossary)

  • Added option to skip processing of a file in some wrappers (i.e. pb2nc or regrid_data_plane) if the output file already exists (See PB2NC_SKIP_IF_OUTPUT_EXISTS in section describing A-Z Config Glossary)
