LuckGrib

Craig McPheeters
LuckGrib is a fully featured, easy to use, fast GRIB reader, viewer and downloader

LuckGrib comes with a 14 day free trial. If you are interested in studying weather and gaining access to detailed weather forecasts, download the app and give it a try.

LuckGrib uses beautiful and fast graphics to give you insight and understanding into how the weather and ocean conditions will change through a forecast as well as showing you the details of what happens at any location.

Weather forecast data, packaged as GRIB files, can be downloaded directly from the LuckGrib server cluster. Downloads from the server cluster are fast - you can easily explore the weather world wide using some of the best weather models available.

All direct high-speed internet data downloads are free. You have immediate access to over 30 weather and ocean models.

Sailors, and other remote users, are able to download weather data while in the "middle on nowhere", some of the most beautiful places on the planet, via satellite or email downloads. See offshore.luckgrib.com for more details.

Weather models are available which contain surface conditions, wave and swell state, ocean currents as well as higher altitude information such as that found at the 850mb, 500mb and 250mb levels - these levels correspond to the low cloud level or jet stream, for example. Some of the models available are: GFS, GDPS, CMC, WW3, HRRR, RAP, NAM, NDFD, Icon-EU, Arpège, Arome, OpenWRF, RTOFS

Check the support site for additional information regarding model availability. Short videos are also available, as are tutorials and other information

• both global and regional models are available
• high resolution GRIB models are supported and displayed on their native grid (you see the actual model data, not a processed version where there is room for error)
• ensemble models have support for standard deviation and other information
• smooth transitions and animation show how the weather or ocean conditions evolve through a forecast
• instantly updated graphical and textual information as you interact with the weather models
• graphs of weather values (meteograms) at a point or along a line. Meteograms are a convenient way to see trends in the weather
• mark points and name them. Measure distances, simulate traveling through weather

• an internet connection is not required to view downloaded files. LuckGrib acts as a fully functional viewer when away from the internet


LuckGrib has a built in GRIB file librarian, allowing you instant access to all of your GRIB files. Switching between GRIB files is very fast, allowing you to compare the results of different models or to watch how a forecast evolves over time
