I previously tried to locally install WRF and failed. Is there any out-of-the-box ready WRF image on Amazon's AWS? Using an existing image will obviously not only make things a lot simpler - but also more reproducible.

Hello Aviv,
Not sure if you are still interested in AWS AMIs but we have recently listed one for Intel and another for Graviton2 (arm) in the Marketplace. The latter is pending aproval but both contain the latest stable WRF version (4.2.2) ready to go.
