     I know I can get recent prepbufr observation files matching the
ones in the MET sample_obs directory (e.g.,
ndas.t00z.prepbufr.tm12.yyyymmdd.nr) from the NCEP ftp site.
     However, I was asked if I could run MET for a model run from
November 2007.  Based on information from NCEP, I contacted NCDC.  They
indicated that they archive gdas data but not ndas data.  Does it have
to be an ndas file for use with the Point-Stat tool in MET?

Thank you,
