Importing GFS Forecast rainfall data with a different Time Zone ["IMPORT"]

I can not change the Time Zone of GFS Forecast Data, when I configure it on import module, I got an error when I run the module on FEWS. which is :  Import.Warn: import from https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov:9090/dods/gfs_0p25/gfs20200306/gfs_0p25_04z failed : Problems while openingNetCdf file after 1 tries from url: https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov:9090/dods/gfs_0p25/gfs20200306/gfs_0p25_04z. Message was: OPeNDAP Server Error= Error {
    code = 0;
    message = "/gfs_0p25/gfs20200306/gfs_0p25_04z is not an available dataset";
};

 

I wonder if there is any way to configure Time Zone of the GFS Data or update the time of the series such as from "00:00, 03:00..." to  "01:00, 04:00" (its 3 hourly data) before uploading it to FEWS Data Viewer.

I need to solve this in order to combine the GFS forecast data with another timeseries which has gmt+10 Time Zone.

My FEWS version is : 2017.02

Hi there - all data is stored in the data in GMT, so I don't think you need to change the GFS data, but import the other series with the correct timezone specified. You can then change how the data is viewed in the GUI via the Explorer.xml. You can also run an external model using a different timezone by specifying a timezone in the general adapter.
Hope that helps. Alex.
