Each of us complained about the forecasters, when finds to be in the rain without an umbrella. In this article, we will tell you how to make a forecast based on the model WRF (Weather Research & Forecasting Model) for the several days in advance.

A few words about WRF

WRF is a numerical weather prediction model, which is suitable to predict the condition of the atmosphere, as well for research. It has been developed by the community of scientific organizations the United States, including the National Center for Atmospheric and Ocean, the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
It is a system of modules: the preparation module of initial and interfacial data (WRF Preprocessing System), it is the actual determinant core (Advanced Research WRF), the post-processing module (WRF Postprocessing System).
Most part of the model is implemented in the language fortran, which is using the library MPI. Modules are written on C for working with data. The model is available in the source codes.
Naturally, the model consumes an enormous amount of CPU time, and it is designed to run on supercomputers, since the weather forecast is one of the toughest tasks.
