With the development of regional climate simulation, CWRF, the new generation regional climate model, is increasingly used in climate research because of its advanced capability and high skill. The CWRF application in China was introduced from three aspects: its modifications of WRF physics parameterizations, the construction of modeling domain and lateral boundary conditions, the case simulation study and comparison with RegCM, illustrating the accuracy and advantage of CWRF in regional climate simulations. Furthermore, two major CWRF developmental prospects in China were explored: one was to incorporate more accurate physical parameterization schemes and optimized multi-physics ensemble approach; the other was to nest CWRF in GCMs for short-term climate operational forecast and long-term climate change prediction and impact assessment. The status of CWRF applications in China was summarized and the outlook of its further development was pointed out, which provided a meaningful reference for more general research and application.
