Convective Heating Rate


New member
Hello all,

I'm curious if there's a way to extract the convective heating rate from WRF output data. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

RTHCUTEN is the temperature tendency due to cumulus. Other than this, there is no output of convective heating rate in standard WRF.
Official WRF codes don't output this variable. You need to modify codes if you want to output this variable.
