Dear HYCOM Group ,
I have scheduled in my crontab a task to download GLBy0.08_930_FMRC water_u and water_v forecast outputs through the ncss service (wget).
To assign an hour of execution to my task, I have checked on ftp.hycom.org
the deposit hour of the hycom_glby_930_YYYYMMDD12_txxx_uv3z.nc files which is approximately between 21:00UTC and 22:00UTC.
So I decided to schedule the execution at 22:30 UTC .
But when my task run the download, my output file is empty.
Therefore, is there a lag between the deposit hour of the forecasts on ftp.hycom.org
and the download from the ncss service (wget) ?
Then, at what time do you suggest me to run my job ?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
