Hello there,

CLDFRA, CLFLO, CLFMI, CLFHI parameters, I have tried to try to represent cloudiness without success.
I have seen some papers that simulate brightness temperature images like that of the satellites using the WRF output variables, but I don't know how it is done.

Do you know any approach that can be implemented through GrADS package and that works more or less well?.

Best regards,

L Alvarez

I am sorry that Grads doesn't have this function. The Unified Post Processing package (UPP) is able to derive brightness temperatur. Please see
