NCL's scripts were created several years ago.
They are applicable to "V1" of the WRF model output.

There was a change in the WRF file attributes used
to indicate "mpLambertMeridianF". The most recent
version of the WRF uses the file attribute "STAND_LON"
rather than "CEN_LON"

The next release of NCL [a034] will be distributed with
the changes that can handle V1 and the V2 WRF output.

You can download the a034 version:


You can use this to replace the current WRF_contributed.ncl

good luck
