variables The WRF model is configured to run in a regional domain with options to add nested inner domains with finer resolutions. The regional forecast runs use lateral boundary conditions from global forecast systems such as the NCEP Global Forecast System (GFS). The large-scale forcing is applied at the outer domain boundaries. In a nested domain run, the inner-domain boundary conditions are provided through the interaction with the outer domain. The cloud-resolving microphysics from GCE model ( Tao

). In comparison, the distribution of in the Portland area is skewed toward near neutral conditions and includes some samples with strong stability ( ; Figs. 2 and 4 ; Table 3 ). The stable environment is the result of land-falling baroclinic systems (not shown), which are stably stratified at low levels. Based on the Fr criteria, the majority of Portland area winter storms are associated with at least partial flow blocking below midmountain level (Fr < 1; Figs. 2 and 4g–4i ). Flow at the
