I have run MCIPv4.4 to prepare meteorology for CMAQ from WRFv3.6.1.
The non-cumulus rain output from MCIP in the METCRO2D file (RN) appears to be quite different than the non-cumulus rain output from the wrfout file (RAINNC). In METCRO2D, RN ~0.03 cm, and only in a small localized area. In wrfout, RAINNC ~30 mm (0.3 cm) across a much greater area. Additionally, METCRO2D RN varies hourly, while wrfout RAINNC is constant each hour.
What is MCIP doing to the WRF precipitation output? Is there an issue with my MCIP results, or might I be interpreting them incorrectly?
