xarray.CFTimeIndex.to_datetimeindex

xarray.CFTimeIndex.to_datetimeindex

CFTimeIndex.to_datetimeindex(unsafe=False)[source]

If possible, convert this index to a pandas.DatetimeIndex.

Parameters

unsafe (bool) – Flag to turn off warning when converting from a CFTimeIndex with a non-standard calendar to a DatetimeIndex (default False).

Returns

pandas.DatetimeIndex

Raises

ValueError – If the CFTimeIndex contains dates that are not possible in the standard calendar or outside the pandas.Timestamp-valid range.

Warns

RuntimeWarning – If converting from a non-standard calendar to a DatetimeIndex.

Warning

Note that for non-standard calendars, this will change the calendar type of the index. In that case the result of this method should be used with caution.

Examples

>>> times = xr.cftime_range("2000", periods=2, calendar="gregorian")
>>> times
CFTimeIndex([2000-01-01 00:00:00, 2000-01-02 00:00:00],
            dtype='object', length=2, calendar='gregorian', freq=None)
>>> times.to_datetimeindex()
DatetimeIndex(['2000-01-01', '2000-01-02'], dtype='datetime64[ns]', freq=None)
