Error in using arw2ral

Post by chojh » September 19th, 2019, 8:20 am

Hello,

I was able to convert some wrf output successfully using arw2arl in CentOS.
The ARLDATA.BIN, WRFRAIN.BIN, ARLDATA.CFG, WRFDATA.CFG file was generated using arw2arl.

in ARLDATA.CFG

But when I run the Run model, I get an error.
Error I got in SIMULATION LOG
ERROR metset: meteorological data time interval varies
Changed from 60 min to -2820 min
At day/hr 5 1
or
Calculation Started ... please be patient
*ERROR* metpos: start point not within (x,y,t) any data file
- start time before start of meteorology data
I set the appropriate start point and start time within the range.
I cannot figure out the path forward and I appreciate it if you gave any advice.

It looks like you have multiple WRF output files in the ARLDATA.BIN, but the data may be incorrect chronological order.
