.SH DESCRIPTION
With the help of observations provided by roads weather stations (road weather information system, RWIS) and the atmospheric forecast, METRo can predict the roads conditions with particular interest such as: freezing rain, accumulation of snow, frost or defrost soil.

Optionnal. Use this argument if you want to provide the infra-fred flux in the atmospheric forecast file instead of a theoretical flux based on cloud cover. The tag for infra-red flux in forecast file is '<ir>'.

Optionnal. Use this argument if the subsurface sensor is not at 0.4 m from the surface. This value can be between 0.2 m and 0.6 m. The modified value should be in the station XML config file in the element '<sst-sensor-depth>, included in the <header> node.

Put in the output roadcast all the temperature for the subsurfaces levels, 19 levels for roads or a uniform grid at every cm for bridges.
