wgrib2: -prob


The TMP (temperature) field usually contains the temperature in Kelvin. However, with the right options, the TMP field could contain the probability of the temperature being

  • below a specified value
  • above or a specified value
  • between a two limits (lower limit <= V < upper limit)
The -prob option prints out the probability field, if any.
