between the occurrence of significant tornadoes and solar heating [Fig. 7 in Dessens and Snow (1989) ], with tornadoes being reported mainly around noon during November–March and between mid and late afternoon during April–October. The tornado database developed by Dessens and Snow (1989) contained 20 significant nighttime tornadoes, which shows that the solar forcing was not directly associated with some of the French tornadoes. The nighttime tornadoes in France may be associated with

) that, without the regular introduction of random forcings, the deterministic filter can develop highly non-Gaussian distributions. In deterministic filters, the regular addition of model error fields, via Eq. (22) [ section 4a(1) ], can serve as a forcing toward Gaussian distributions ( Lawson and Hansen 2004 , their section 5). Whereas, as mentioned, the EAKF and EnSRF algorithms are very similar, actual implementations for complex assimilation systems can be quite different. A deterministic

deep, moist convection east of the center ( Quinting et al. 2014 ). Deep, moist convection developed in response to meso- to synoptic-scale forcing for ascent where the leading edge of the dry-air intrusion from the west intersected an intensifying warm front ( Fig. 10 ). A similar evolution was also observed in WNP Typhoon Phanfone (2014) by polarimetric radar observations collected on board the Research Vessel (R/V) Mirai ( Katsumata et al. 2016 ). Together, these studies provide observational
