, the underlying N ( D ) is different and causes the seasonal variation of the mean 10-min values of N ( D ) and KE( D ). The causes for annual variation are numerous and may be related also for example to the current sea ice extent or teleconnections (e.g., North Atlantic Oscillation). The strong deviation of the winter values in 2013 from the seasonal mean might also be influenced by the high percentage of snow in that winter (see also Con3 in Table 3 ). The most unexpected result in this

. 2013 ), the changes in location and intensity of the Siberia high ( Xu et al. 2010 ), and variation of evaporation in upwind lakes (e.g., the Caspian Sea and Mediterranean) ( Dai et al. 2007 ; Huang et al. 2013 ) likely have their contribution in the variations of winter snowfall in the arid Central Asia.

Mountains) distributes in the upwind direction ( Fig. S4 ). The combination of large-scale forcing such as the plum rainfall, land–sea circulation and the regional topography are considered as the dominant factors affecting the precipitation clustering in this region ( Fu et al. 2019 ). Although there are clustered patterns of precipitation extremes, the urban signatures are not evident in the YRD ( Figs. 5d–f ). In the following session, we present two typical regions of Beijing and PRD, where urban

through use of lead–lag correlation analysis, as discussed in the next section. c. Lead–lag correlation analysis Lead–lag correlation analysis is widely used in the study of ocean–atmosphere coupling to help identify the driving mechanisms. For example, the largely symmetric correlations of monthly wind and sea surface temperature (SST) with respect to the lags indicate essentially two-way interactions in the tropics ( Lian et al. 2018 ); whereas in the extratropics, the much heavier loading at wind

1. Introduction The predictability of the atmosphere is limited by the chaotic nature of atmospheric turbulence to a time span of the order of one week or less ( Lorenz 1969 ; Smagorinsky 1969 ; Lorenz 1982 ). Earth's surface, however, has “memories” much longer than those of the atmosphere. Significant improvements in short-term climate forecasts as well as weather forecasts can be found by including the modeling of Earth's surface, for example, land surface processes and sea surface

The weak ECC found between H23 and both SM2R ( Fig. 3a ) and ERA5 ( Fig. 3b ) is generally consistent with our earlier assumption that error in H23
