Instead of clicking every single year file to download, python script can be used as:

import urllib.requestfor i in range(1979,2018,1): print('donwloading year',i) file='ftp://ftp.cdc.noaa.gov/Datasets/ncep.reanalysis.dailyavgs/surface/slp.'+str(i)+'.nc' data='slp.'+str(i)+'.nc' urllib.request.urlretrieve(file, data)

This script downloads SLP daily data from 1979 to 2017 without clicking all files one by one.
