the large WRA simulation. To briefly summarize, perturbations to WRA demonstrate the nonlinear interactions between cloud water and surface precipitation. Reducing the rain accretion process initially reduces PE and precipitation rate and increases cloud water in the atmosphere, but the increased cloud water is associated with a deeper cloud layer (lower cloud base), leading to an increase in 〈COND〉 that compensates for the decrease in PE. The opposite occurs for large WRA, thus resulting in

et al. (2011) , using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model, demonstrated that terrain-induced KH waves in the upper troposphere were not resolved at 3-km horizontal grid spacing but were at 1 km. Efimov (2017) used the WRF Model to simulate KH waves over Crimea, and Trier et al. (2012) simulated turbulence arising from KH instability in a winter cyclone. Thompson (2007) simulated the formation of KH instability in a sea-breeze front using the U.S. Navy’s Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere
