I used WRFV3.8.1 congfigured with 4 one-way nested domains with horizontal grid spacing of 27, 9 , 3, 1(d04, mesh size of 31*25) km respectively.
However I got error messages below:

The "Width" of th lateral boundary conditions must be entirely contained within the decomposed patch.
ips= 1, ipe= 4, hps= 1, jpe= 3, spec_bdy_width= 5

Submit the real program again with fewer processors
I appreciate it if anyone could help me with this problem.

Can you let me know how many processors you're using to run this, and can you please upload your namelist.input file so that I can take a look?
