Hi all.

When I run real.exe it gives me multiple errors related to NetCDF, although the execution ends successfully and wrf.exe can be run without problems.

The errors are of this type:
d01 2019-05-14_00:00:00  NetCDF error: NetCDF: Variable not found
d01 2019-05-14_00:00:00  NetCDF error in wrf_io.F90, line        2883  Varname XLAT

Attached rsl.error and rsl.out

Thank you.

If you turn off debug (set debug_level=0), these errors will not appear. They won't affect model results and you can ignore these error messages.
