The WRF-DART tutorial steps through a WRF-DART experiment. The experiment covers the continental United States and uses a 50 member ensemble initialized from NCEP’s Global Forecast System (GFS) initial conditions at 2017/04/27 00:00 UTC. The data included in the tutorial covers up to 2017/04/30 18:00 UTC. During this period, there was a strong rain and wind event that affected a large portion of the United States, causing record rains, localized flooding, and numerous tornadoes. For more information on the physical account of this case, see weather.gov.
