Hi ,

I am trying to run a 3-month simulation over CONUS.

I am using
  • GFSANL as the initial and boundary conditions
  • default 'CONUS' set as physics suite
  • adaptive timestepping with min timestep of 10-s and a starting timestep of 120-s
  • grid size is 36-km, with only one domain for now

First, I am simulating 1-month duration for each of 3-months and then I want to simulate the full 3-months in a single run. I am considering 07,08,09 months of 2019. I started the first run at 06/22/2019::0000 and completed the run till 08/01/2019::0000 without getting any errors. Now, I started the second-month run at 07/22/2019::0000 and getting a "Flerchinger USEd in NEW version. Iterations= 10" message near 07/22/2019::1200.

I have looked at other posts with a similar problem and checked my wrfinput_d01 file for any zeros or negative values for SOIL related variables. Only SOILCTOP, SOILCBOT, SH2O and SMCREL, are 0 and all others are >0.

Below are the contents of rsl.out file:

I am wondering why WRF is getting an error at this date and time when it ran successfully in the first-run from 06/22-08/01.

Any suggestions on where the code or my setup is running into problems?

Thanks in advance
Sudheer
