Researchers from the National Center for Atmospheric Research NCAR and other organizations are developing the Weather Research and Forecasting WRF model with the goal of meeting the needs of both the meteorological research and operational weather forecast communities. This report documents the results found running the WRF version 126.96.36.199 in a nested mode centered over southern New Mexico. The WRF model, initialized with North American Mesoscale NAM model output, comprised three domains based on grid spacing intervals of 18 km, 6 km, and 2 km. Model output is compared to surface observations and upper-air soundings for all three domains.
