I’m getting the following error when running mcip (v5.1) with WRF files that include different simulation start dates.
While I understand that this is related to mcip using precipitation accumulation variables from two consecutive hours to calculate hourly precipitation rates, I’m wondering if there’s an alternative for calculating hourly precipitation that allows the use of WRF files with different simulation start dates.
The time episode that we’re modeling is quite long and necessitates a WRF re-start.
Our WRF outputs include PREC_ACC variable which stores hourly precipitation rates.
Will mcip always use precipitation accumulation variables or can we have it revert to using PREC_ACC? Also, will using PREC_ACC impact TMPBEIS3?
