[IDV #TFK-746246]: import of subsetted WRF output in IDV

Greetings David,

Did you know that you can subset the full WRF grid in the IDV before
you load any data into memory? Once you open the datafile in the IDV,
you will be taken to the Field Selector. Before selecting a variable to
plot, right click on the data files entry in the Data Source pane (left
side of the Field Selector window) and click "Properties." This will
bring up a properties box for your WRF output. You can subset spatially
and temporarily by clicking on the Spatial Subset and Times tabs.
Because the IDV does not actually load any data (other than the metadata)
until you tell it to create the display. 

Will this work for you?
