problems running metgrid.exe

Postby elena.conigliaro » Mon Feb 19, 2018 6:27 am


I am totally new to WRF and I have problems getting the version WRF to run.

I have successfully compiled WRF (serial mode) and WPS. I am running WRF on. The geogrid and ungrib steps work ok (I received these messages: "! Successful completion of ungrib. !" , "! Successful completion of geogrid. !"). But when I try to execute the metgrid.exe, I get this error:

Processing domain 1 of 5
Processing 2018-02-10_00
ERROR: Didn't recognize format version of data in FILE:2018-02-10_00.\nFound version 83886080 but expected either 3, 4, or 5. This could be an endian problem.

As suggested by OnLine Tutorial ( ... torial.php) I'm using, as input, GFS data downloaded from the site: ... .0p50.f0hh.

Does anybody know the meaning of this error?
What can I do?

Thank you for your help!!
