HPC requirements

Dear forum,
I was wondering if I can get some help/guidance in the definition of HPC requirements (mainly in terms of tflops required, but also some other recommendations are welcome) for an operational WRF model. I have been trying to get information through several sources with limited success. I was wondering if somebody can help me and/or point in the right direction for this so I can find the right requirements. The idea is to run the following operational models with WRF:
- One 7km grid (approximately 1400km by 700km).
- One 2km grid (approximately 700km by 400km nested to the previous one)
- Two 0.5km grid (approximately 300km by 150km nested to the previous one)
Forecast for 5-7 days. Ideally these grids should be run operationally in less than 3 hours. Any help or guidance would be highly appreciated.
