    Metgrid run with dmpar (parallel run)

    I am running WRF using WPS 4.4 version and would like to run metgrid using dmpar.

    Overlapping domains

    I am currently designing an OSSE using a single domain convection-allowing nature run and single domain control runs at the same resolution. The only difference is in the location and size of the domains - the nature domain occupies a much larger area. For ease of verification, I'd like to...
