I am using WRF for our field tests which necessitate accurate weather measurements.

I would like to ask about the accuracy of WRF for instantenaous (not prediction from before days) weather variables (temperature, pressure, air density vs.) I could only find
accuracy assessments like "accurate within 10 m". What I am curious is variable accouacy like +-1 C. It is very important because when we use meteorology baloon, this kinds of variable acccuracies given.

Thanks in advance,
Can you describe a bit more what you are looking for? Are you looking for literature that discusses studies done to show accuracy?
