WRF and WSL Windows Subsystem for Luinux

Post by Christian » Thu Aug 15, 2019 4:09 pm

What are the disadvantages of installing WRF in a linux distro using WSL/WSL 2 on Windows?
We are starting to use WRF and our sysadmin refuses to obtain a dedicated Linux machine. Our use case will be downscaling of reanalysis data for wind energy applications. We will start with small scale, short test cases which will can be run on a Single-CPU workstation.

Installation seems to be viable. But we don't know if data exchange between the Linux and Windows layers is practical and if the lack of graphical output will be a drawback.

Thanks for your comments.

I first would like to apologize for the very long delay in response to this inquiry. It seems this section of the forum was overlooked for the past few months. Thank you for your patience.

As this has been so long, I assume that you and your team have come up with a solution by now?
