Hi,
I am following this tutorial (Single model domain case- hurricane katrina) https://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/OnLineTutorial/CASES/SingleDomain/wrf.php

Every stage before real.exe, I am able to run successfully.
In real.exe;

the process stops in the terminal just after I run real.exe and the message is : starting wrf task 0 of 1
and the rsl.error.0000 file showing the error,
ERROR in psfc: flag_psfc = 1, flag_soilhgt = 1, flag_slp = 0, sfcp_to_sfcp = F
-------------------------------------FATAL CALLED -------------------------------------------------------
FATAL CALLED FROM FILE: <stdin> LINE: 1404
not enough info for a p sfc computation. (attached).

I have attached namelist, rsl.error, and screenshot from terminal.

Would you please show me some light?

Thanks in advance

Hello,
I am trying to run the same case as you, following the online tutorial and I am facing the exact same problem. Any feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
 
Hello,
I think I found something useful at the following link:
https://forum.mmm.ucar.edu/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=8597&p=14864&hilit=ERROR+in+psfc%3A+flag_#p14864

I just added the flag sfcp_to_sfcp = .true. to the "domains" section of namelist.input and now the problem is fixed!
Good luck!
 
Hi,

I have added the flag in the domain section
sfcp_to_sfcp = .true.

It is still giving me the same error.

Which version of WPS and WRF you are running? Where did you get the met_em files? If you produce met-em yourself, please let me know what input data you use.
 
Hello,

I am using WPS & WRF V.4

and I am using the same met_em files as mentioned in the Hurricane case in this tutorial ( https://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/OnLineTutorial/CASES/SingleDomain/metgrid.php )

Thanks
 
Please run WPS to produce your own met_em files. The one in the website may be for the older version of WRF.
