WRF runs further(longer) than run_days and the end DateTime


New member
Dear WRF-Team
Recently I installed WRF4.2.2 and noticed that it runs longer than the given run_days and end date and time.
I attached my namelist.input and rsl.error.0000
I would appreciate it if you could tell me what is wrong with my namelist.

I want to mention that the first time I ran the WRF model, I created wrfbdy and wrffdda for the period specified in the list of names, but I got an error that the model could not find wrfbdy data for the given time. This time I created wrfbdy and wrffdda one day more than the simulation period.

In your namelist.input, you set run_days =9, which is 1-day longer than the time you specified by start and end time. Note that "run_days" has a higher priority than the start and end time. This is why WRF runs longer .
