Ugrib is a lightweight Windows application designed to help users access and download GRIB weather data, which is used in meteorology for storing historical and forecast weather information.
It sports a clean and straightforward interface that offers quick access to a world map. Ugrib gives users the possibility to select the area of interest by using the mouse or specifying the coordinates.
Plus, you can choose the resolution and parameters that should be displayed on the map (wind, rain, pressure), limit the file size, pick the default saving directory, and select the connection type.
Ugrib allows users to zoom in or out of the map and create categories for multiple areas, so you can easily download data for them.
Furthermore, you can upload GRIB files and check out their content directly from the primary panel, pick the isobar interval, as well as make the program display wind bars, accumulated rain, and isobar details.
Additionally, you can view a meteogram which reveals graphical details about the wind speed and direction, as well as information about the rainfall and surface pressure.
During our testing we have noticed that Ugrib offers very good image quality and downloads GRIB files very quickly, and without errors throughout the entire process.
All things considered, Ugrib provides a user-friendly interface for helping you download GRIB data and keep you up-to-date with the latest weather conditions. It doesn’t slow down system performance, and even less experienced users can manipulate weather data with minimum effort.
