Hi all,
I am looking for external SST data for WRF simulations
Is there a way to use ERA5 SST data hourly format with WRF run with GFS meteorological files
Any help will be highly appreaciated
Without knowing anything about the format of the ERA-5 SST files, in theory this should be something you can do. Take a look at this section of our WRF Online Tutorial for specific instructions for using external SST data.
