Default skew-t access

I don't care what side your on, but this shutdown took down the access to
Skew-T data. This blows...

Rucsoundings.noaa.gov just takes you to the govt shutdown page

Anyone know a skew-t site that still works?

Weather data are still being recorded and disseminated from government computers, so independent sites using them, such as the various RASP sites, are still operating. I believe some of the NOAA departments remain open, but most are shut, including almost all research operations.

I use a software called zyGrib on Linux (also exist for Win and Mac)(www.zygrib.org).
It displays predicted skew t - log p and still have access to a server with fresh data.

That's a help, and will serve until the interactive Skew-T is back on
line. Thanks.
