Restart without wrfrst files

Dear all,

I have a simulation that has run for 47 hours wall-clock time and the simulation time was just 7 hours.
Since my "restart_interval_h = 12", no "wrfrst" files were written.

Are there ways to restart the simulation from the latest snapshot of "wrfout"?

Best regards,

There is no way to restart WRF from a time when no wrfrs file exists. You may restart from the latest time that wrfrst exists, and continue from there.
