Model returning error during initialization

Post by akp » January 12th, 2016, 9:00 pm

I am running 60 cycles of the model with similar SETUP.CFG and CONTROL files. Most cycles run without a problem, however there are is at least one cycle where I get the following message during initialization and it does not run at all:

As I mentioned before, all the cycles are set up in the same way with the output of the previous cycle starting the current cycle. I have checked and double checked my control files and input data but have found no error or solution to my problem.

What is the meteorological data that you are using when you get the error message?

I am using WRF-ARW. I think there may be issues with the model data files. The issue with file times seems to be a recurring issue though.


40 cycles later a run just hangs after going 3/4 of the way through. There are more time-related error messages such as

WARNING advpnt: Time 2 input does not match request!
Internal time: 60960191
Time of data: 60959880
Request time: 60960240

In this case, the requested calculation time is outside the period of time covered by the meteorology.
When dealing with arw2arl you need to pay careful attention to the periods of time your are dealing with. Also, when you concatenate the ARL formatted files make sure that they are in chronological order.

Are you using WRF of GFS?
