Outputting Heating profiles

I would like to look at vertical profiles of latent heating and possibly cloud radiative heating. Is there a way to have this output or does it need to be manually output from the microphysics and other schemes? Is there code available to do something like this already?

Thanks for your help!
WRF doesn't output these variables. You will need to modify the codes (cumulus. microphysics and radiation) to output them. There is no utility available to output these variables. For details how to output new variables, please see the document here:
