Hi Anil,

Welcome to NCL! You can read all of your netCDF files at once using the
addfiles/addfiles_GetVar functions:
(see example 4. The time variable is automatically concatenated.)

Once you have the precipitation read in, you can calculate the rainfall
for each day by looping through each day and by using the dim_sum
If WRF is giving you cumulative rainfall for each 3 hour period, then you
need to sum up the rainfall across every 8 timesteps to calculate a daily
cumulative rainfall total.

a quick example script (ppt is dimensioned (time,lat,lon))
ntim = dimsizes(ppt&time)
finppt = ppt(:ntim/8-1,:,:) ; preallocate space for new daily ppt array
                              ; metadata information kept
temp = ppt(lat|:,lon|:,time|:) ; reorder array so that time is the
                                ; rightmost dimension. dim_sum will operate
                                ; on the rightmost dimension
cntr = 0
do gg = 0,ntim-1,8 ; increment do loop by 8
   finppt(cntr,:,:) = (/ dim_sum(temp(:,:,gg:gg+7)) /)
   cntr = cntr+1
end do

Good luck!

file for a WRF run , what is the procedure to add all the files in a
single script ,and how time variable will de adjusted accordingly, i
want to calculate 24 hour rainfall for each dar ,but WRF Model is giving
cumulative rainfall. please if anybody is having some script that will
be usefull to me .
