*Note: This executable will install the Wingridds Version (3.2) used at the WPC International Desks. This version includes several macros/scripts and variables used for weather forecasting at the desks. An example is the Galvez-Davison Index. To download GFS data using this version you will need to use the following set of programs and place them in C:/WINGRIDDS/datosector_gfs/en . You might need to adjust your scripts so they grab the date from the computer correctly. Please refer to our old website for detailed instructions.
