I want to know if there is some type of GFS or reanalysis data available to forecast rainfall, wind speed, etc. in advance (24 hour advance) using WRF?
PS: Today is 22 August 2019, I want to forecast the rainfall for 23-25 August 2019 using WRF, can It be achievable?

NCEP post real-time GFS forecast products, which can be downloaded from their website and drive WRF for regional forecast.
