Hi all,

I am using WRF V3.0 for the simulation of a heavy rainfall case. Three
nested domains have been defined with a grid spacing of 27, 9, and 3 Km
respectively. YSU BL scheme and NOAH LSM have been used while the KF cumulus
param has been used for the first two domains. The time step was set to 27 s
(with a time step ratio of 3 for each nested domain) and the inegration
period was 96h. When i use the PLIN (mp=2) microphysics param the model runs
without problems. But if i choose the WSM6 (mp=6) the run stops and I get
this error message: *Flerchinger USEd* in NEW *version*. Iterations= 10 .
Searching it on the internet i saw suggestions that this message is related
to a violation of the cfl criterion. I tried smaller timesteps (18 and 9 s),
changed the size of the domains and the vertical resolution but this error
keeps coming back in later timesteps.
Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance
