In Response To: Availability of native RUC data (Alicia Klees)
We recommend using RUC-native grids for WRF-ARW initial conditions (wrf_in*) using WPS (make sure the v-table includes the 3-d cloud-hydrometeor fields). Then produce the lateral boundary condition fields (wrf_bdy*) using a separate WPS run with the isobaric RUC fields. WPS can be applied to GRIB data to produce information to develop an appropriate v-table to best read that data.
Our apology for the bad 5-week delay on responding.
18 May 2015 - Hello,
Are historical native RUC grids (forecasts) available somewhere? I'm hoping to initialize WRF-ARW with RUC data for a case in 2010 and have only been able to find isobaric RUC grids (NOMADS) and analysis-only native RUC grids (ARM). Any help is very much appreciated!
