Run simulation with GFS not starting at f000


I wanted to know if it was possible to run a WRF simulation starting with GFS different of f000 (for example f025) if the date is accurately specified in both namelists.
I have this doubt since GFS includes accumulated variables (such as precipitation) and I don't know how the WRF model would handle this if starting with accumulated variables different from 0.
Yes it is possible to run WRF starting from GFS that is not at f000 tie.
WRF doesn't use rainfall data from GFS, and you don't need to worry for accumulated variables from GFS.
