[IDV #STN-807124]: NCML to fix your post-porcessed WRF output



Helene,

Good to know you found a solution. Stop by Unidata if you need any additional 
help.

Best,

> ../wrfout_d02_2011-07-01_06_plev.ncml), but since P_INTERP is just a single
> Fortran script I just changed the dimension name there from
> 'num_metgrid_levels' to 'pressure', a fix that will work fine unless one is
> not generating met_em-files. Now the P_INTERP output files work great with
> IDV, so I'll just use the modified P_INTERP from now on and forward.

> 1402:              IF ( ii == 3 ) test_dim_name = 'num_metgrid_levels'
> 1422:                 test_dim_name = 'num_metgrid_levels'
