Dear all,
I am using the Polar-WRF and its need some other data which are not available in GRIB.So I wrote these data into the intermediate file WPSformat with NCL.It did work and I got intermediate file like:ALBSI:yyyy-mm-dd ICEDEPTH:yyyy-mm-dd
However,when I was trying to run metgrid.exe,it said it Couldn't open these intermediate file.I don't know what happened.
Any indication is appreciated. Thanks.

Please run the utility rd_intermediate.exe to read these data you created and examine whether they are in correct format.
For your information, please take a look at the document:

The log file indicates that your intermediate file is correct.
How about the other file "ALBSI"? However, since you have successfully produced "ICEDEPTH", I don't think something could be wrong with "ALBSI". Please double check just in case.
If both files are correct, I see no reason why metgrid cannot open and read them.
