I want to run WRF v4.1 using climatological SST and an additional 2degC? Has anyone done this before? Can you share how you did it?

For WRF run using climatological SST, it should be the same as using SST from analysis dataset. If you have problems, please clarify.

By saying "with an additional 2degC", do you mean you want to do some sensitivity experiments with 2degC warmer of SST? If so, you may simply add 2degC to your SST data over the area you are interested.
