Hi Philip!

I'm a little familiar with rNOMADS... I tried following the example for
'ArchiveGribGrab' using a more recent date

#An example for the Global Forecast System
#Get data for January 1 2014
#Temperature at 2 m above ground
#3 hour prediction
# using GRIB
abbrev <- "gfsanl"
model.date <- 20200601
model.run <- 00
preds <- 3

I got this result...
URL 'https://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov/data/gfsanl/202006/20200601/': status was
'Couldn't resolve host name'

Even this part of the URL was not found: https://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov -- so
there is documentation problems.

I did get the first example, using contour to work fine. You probably
should contact Daniel C. Bowman <danny.c.bowman using gmail.com> directly with
issues, because the problems you are seeing may be resolvable only by him...
