it should not matter. distros are all about desktop decor,
which is irrelevant to cluster applications. you should use
a distro which your admins are comfortable with - the packaging
format, for instance. I personally find yum very good, and thus
prefer RH-like distros. I doubt that meteorological apps have
any special properties beyond the normal working kernel/filesystem/
compiler/scheduler/mpi stuff, which should be achievable in any distro.
