Website for downloading raw ICs is unavailable

Hello,

The MRW App workflow can automatically download raw initial conditions from https://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov. However, this site is unavailable at the moment. I also noticed it has been up and down over the last few days, making it difficult to run the App. When the App runs, we get the error below.

Does anybody know what is going on with this website?

Thanks,

Ligia

I posted a question under the MRW app before I saw this one. Sorry for the duplicate there. I had the same problem today (6/4). I will keep trying...
