As you can see, many small spurious convections arise around the mountain after integrating for two hours (0000 UTC to 0200 UTC, 0800 BJT to 1000 BJT).
I have changed the analysis file from FNL to GFS, ERA5, but these convections still exist, what can i do to remove them?

We will need some additional information about your run.
1) What version of WRF are you using?
2) Have you made any modifications to the code, or is it the "out-of-the-box" code?
3) Can you please attach your namelist.input and namelist.wps files so that we can take a look?
