multimodel forecasting and have focused on individual catchments. The potential of multimodel forecasts at the regional or continental scale shown in previous studies provides the motivation for building a global multimodel hydrometeorological forecasting system. In this study we present our experiences in building a multimodel hydrometeorological forecasting system. Global ensemble discharge forecasts with a 10-day horizon are generated using the ECMWF land surface model and a river-routing model. The

realistically simulated. The river runoff generated in the real world must be routed through a natural network of water flow paths, such as creeks, brooks, tributaries, and major river channels. These paths are naturally created by soil erosion and are orographically modulated and temporally carved. A few exceptions represent scenarios either where humans have created new paths for water-use needs or where small passages have naturally broadened to provide cross-basin flows. In this way, these intricate

m −1 s −1 . It was suggested ( Newell et al. 1992 ) that the water vapor transport in the troposphere is characterized by a filamentary structure, called tropospheric rivers. The moisture flux in a typical tropospheric river is about 1.6 × 10 8 kg s −1 , which is similar to the flux in the Amazon River. The evaluation of Peixoto and Oort (1992) showed that the zonally averaged annual mean meridional water vapor flux poleward across 30°N is about 7 × 10 8 kg s −1 . Thus, four or five

1. Introduction Atmospheric rivers (ARs) are narrow corridors of water vapor, usually associated with an extratropical cyclone, that transport moisture in the lower troposphere and typically contain a low-level jet ( Ralph et al. 2018 ; Zhu and Newell 1998 ; Ralph et al. 2004 , 2005 ; Waliser and Guan 2017 ; Dettinger et al. 2011 ; Lamjiri et al. 2017 ). They are the primary mechanism for transport of moisture from the tropics to the midlatitudes ( Zhu and Newell 1998 ) and are

diameter of ~5000 μ m. Because of the irregular morphologies of flocs (see Fig. 6 ), the definition of floc size is somewhat problematic. Following the works of Manning and Bass (2006) , Graham et al. (2012) , and MacDonald et al. (2013) , the definition of the equivalent spherical diameter was adopted, in which d is given by 4.

intensity, though the literature is relatively quiet on synoptic patterns that result in drylines moving atypically far eastward. This study builds on Schultz et al. (2007) by adding Mississippi River valley (MRV) dryline events and retaining a synoptic-scale focus. A number of dryline climatologies have been published (e.g., Rhea 1966 ; Schaefer 1974 ; Hoch and Markowski 2005 ; Schultz et al. 2007 ), though none of them extend east of the Great Plains. These studies examined April

variability to local impacts/conditions is particularly relevant. a. Examples of local-scale impacts in Florida Understanding local ENSO patterns, on the scale of counties or drainage basins, has application for Florida’s economy. Florida’s two most important economic sectors are tourism and agriculture, both of which are highly affected by rainfall and river discharge in coastal areas. For example, Hansen et al. (1999) find that during the winter season in Florida, quarterly yields, prices, production
