–150-km-long arcs in radar reflectivity) along a gust front were the preferred locations for surface convergence and for convective development. Deep convection occurred along the gust front only after interaction with the dryline and/or low-level jet. This outflow boundary first propagated as a density current and evolved toward an internal undular bore. Dual-Doppler radar analyses also showed waves generated atop the cold-air outflow (e.g., Mueller and Carbone 1987 ; Weckwerth and Wakimoto 1992

), likely due to the lower probability of a TC interacting with the midlatitude flow associated with the climatological poleward retreat of the polar jet in boreal summer. September is also the month in which the greatest percentage of recurving WNP TCs reintensify after becoming extratropical ( Klein et al. 2000 ; Archambault et al. 2013 ). The ET frequency varies both between and within WNP typhoon seasons: it occurs less frequently when the subtropical high is anomalously strong, such that TCs are

Although there was some controversy over whether or not the Kenyan winds couldbe used to predict the Indian rainfall, Findlater (1969)argued that these same precipitation changes were inresponse to the changing Somali jet.

and omega balance equations allows for the representation of some effects of the jet dynamics on space and time variations of temperature covariances in particular. Another way to relax the covariance homogeneity assumption is to represent geographical variations of variances while using the homogeneity assumption for correlations. This has been done in the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) variational assimilation system, as described in Derber and Bouttier (1999) , by

particles have very low weights (see Fig. 1 , at t = 20). That means that the statistical information in the ensemble becomes too low to be meaningful. This is called filter degeneracy . It has given importance sampling a low profile until resampling was (re)invented, see later on. In a naive example, van Leeuwen and Evensen (1996) applied importance sampling in a two-layer quasigeostrophic model of the perturbed baroclinic jet with a state dimension of 6400.
