WRF Output not coming in NETCDF Format


New member

As per the guidance and timely assistance provided by the community, I was able to successfully install WRF. While I was running the model, i again was successful with the run. But, I got the output in binary format despite selecting "2" which states NETCDF.
Sharing namelist input and output files for reference.

Could somebody please assess the possible reason behind the same.
Any kind of assistance will be highly appreciated as my work is now halted for this reason.

Apologies for the long delay in response. I was out of the office for the past 2.5 weeks. Thank you for your patience.

I have never seen this issue before. Is it possible there is some sort of environment setting that is overriding your setting for io_form_output? Can you share one of your wrfout* files so I can take a look? It will likely be too large to attach here, so please see the home page of this forum for instructions on sharing a large file. Thanks!
