Hello all,

I'm running WRF for a regional climate run, and am getting wrfout files far too frequently based on my namelist.input options. I have history_interval = 60, 360, and frames_per_outfile = 1,1, but am getting multiple wrfout files per minute. I have attached the namelist.input file, and any help would be really appreciated.

Hi Brian,
Can you also attach your output log file (e.g., rsl.out.0000) and issue the following command:
ls -ls wrfout* >&
and attach that file, as well? Thanks!
Hi Kelly,

Sorry for the slow response. I was able to fix this issue with a suggestion to include the following lines in namelist.input:

adjust_output_times = .true.,
override_restart_timers = .true.,
