This page is tested in and (Why only these two? Because my advisor uses Chrome, and I use Edge.)

You may do three things here:

  1. Download grib2 files
  2. View metadata files
  3. View a sample image of simulated reflectivity for the file. Also check out the page: Custom HRRR Map.

Select the model type, variable field, and date of interest. Toggle the buttons for what you want to do.

Then click Submit. You must click 'submit' after you make a change.

The grid of hours and forecasts displayed represent the HRRR model fun hours and the subsequent forecasts. If the file is available, the button will be highlighted dark blue. Click the button to retrieve the file.

Files are named similar to HRRR files named on the NOMADS site. For example,
[model type].t[run hour]z.wrf[variable field]f[forecast hour].grib2

While each file contains additional date information, the file name only contains information about the run and forecast hour. Beware of overwriting files if you download from multiple days into the same directory.

Click "Scripting Tips" above for some help scripting the download process.

Read the HRRR FAQ for a description of what file and dates are available.
