its original formulation, is unrealistically moist in the middle to upper troposphere (e.g., Potvin and Flora 2015 ). To add thermodynamic variability to our simulations, we used two different boundary layer moisture values of 14 and 16 g kg −1 , yielding two different convective available potential energy (CAPE) values and mixed-layer depths (0–1-km mean CAPE values of 1729 and 2744 J kg −1 , respectively). Runs with 14 and 16 g kg −1 are referred to as LOWCAPE and HICAPE, respectively. Fig . 1
