TIMESTAMP BUG FOR MIN/MAX/AVG VARIABLES IN GRIB2

Posted: 2019-03-11
Problem: There is a bug with how the timestamp is listed for variables that are computed over some time period, such as the min, max, or average over a time period. This issue has been noted for all intervals, excluding hourly output. This could cause issues for reading your UPP output in downstream applications.
Solution: At this time there is no fix.
