Application Error - Initialization

Hello
I am running monthly back trajectories with HYSPLIT 5.0.0 for windows and I got an application error (see attachment). It seems to me it ran fine as I see all the tdump files so I am just wondering what the error means and if there's something I need to fix.
Thank you

The error message is about the trajecotry start time before the start time of the meteorological data.
Please check the CONTROL file. For computing trajectories for a month, you will need to provide meteorogical data covering the whole month.

I am trying to do back trajectories for the whole month of September 1970 and this is the CONTROL File:

70 10 01 00
1
61.4 -141.7 4420.0
-168
0
10000.0
1
C:/hysplit/working/
RP197009.gbl
./
tdump70100100

I provide the meteorological file (RP197009.gbl) for Sept 1970 but I guess it does not include Oct 1970 00, is that the problem then? and how to solve this?

Thank you

I added the meteorological data covering the two months and that solved the issue.
Thanks!
