./run.met2mgn.v32.csh error

Hi everyone,
I’m currently running the Megan 3.2 model. My wrfout time step is 6 hours, starting from 2017-06-01_00:00. When running MCIP, it requires a time later than the start time, so the initial time of the MCIP output file is 2017-06-01_06:00.
However, after running ./run.met2mgn.v32.csh, the model displays an error saying it can’t find 2017-06-01_01:00. So, I modified the #set start/end dates in run.met2mgn.v32.csh to setenv STDATE ${jdy}06 (00, to 06 instead). Strangely, the error message now says the model can’t find 2017-06-01_07:00 (instead of 2017-06-01_06:00). Does anyone know how to resolve this issue when the wrfout time step is 6 hours?
Thank you very much for your help

This is an I/O API related setup/programming problem. From the log-chunk:
The file has a 6-hour time step, starting June 1 at 06:00:00 and duration 7 time steps (hence contains June 1 06:00, 12:00, 18:00, and June 2 0:00, 06:00, 12:00, and 18:00).

However, the program is requesting non-present date&time June 2 07:00.

Either you should have a 1-hour time step file, or the program should only request those dates&times that are available in the file, or (most likely) the program should have used INTERP3() instead of READ3.
