I would like to use the WRFOUT data as the initialization for metgrid. I've read that you can use UPP, however I am having many difficulties installing this, it says that it doesn't have the right rules.

Is there any other way to achieve the objective of using WRFOUT data for metgrid?

Many thanks.
Unfortunately the only method I'm aware of is to use UPP. I see that you've already posted an inquiry in the UPP section. Someone from that group will respond to your inquiry soon hopefully. If you get to the middle of next week and still haven't gotten a response, let me know and I'll try to reach out to someone in that group to see if they can take a look at your post.
