Temperature over a lake

Dear WRF-experts,

I activated the sf_lake_physics in the namelist.input. How do I extract the lake surface temperature?
I checked the Registry.EM_COMMON but cannot find the lake surface temperature.

Is this variable equivalent to the Skin Surface Temperature and not the 2-m temperature?

I'll appreciate any help on this.

Hi Lyndz,
If you run with lake physics, then there is a 'lake' type in your landuse input data. TSK is surface temperature and you can simply extract TSK at all points with 'lake' as the surface type. Hope this is helpful.
