Hello!
I am running WRF with the data from ECMWF. I ran WPS successfully, but when I ran real.exe I got this error:

Do you know how I can fix it?

Hi,
It seems that you have num_metgrid_levels = 27 in your namelist.input file, but the met_em* files are only showing 7 levels of data, which doesn't seem right. Make sure the input data you are using is correct and that WPS is processing all the levels.
 
Thank you so much.

I was able to successfully run the WRF model with data from the ECMWF, but when I plotted the temperature at 2 meters, some cold spots appeared and remain over time. Do you know why this happens? I think the horizontal interpolation in the METGRID.TBL is changing the results, but I'm not too sure about that.
I show the picture for 2 meter Temperature

Hi,
I'm glad to hear you were able to get past the error and run successfully.

Since your new question is not related to the original post, please post that as a separate/new topic. This helps keep things organized for searchability and readability later. Thanks!
