17 CMIP5 models that represent a large set of climate centers and model types and synthesize model performance across all analyses for this core set. Details of the observational datasets to which the climate models are compared are also given in this section. The next two sections focus on different aspects of North American climate and surface processes. Section 3 begins with an overview of climate model depictions of continental climate, including seasonal precipitation, air temperature, sea

the coast. Associated with these storms are heavy snow ( Novak et al. 2008 ), inland flooding ( Colle 2003 ), and storm surge ( Colle et al. 2008 ). Therefore, any change in the frequency and intensity of these midlatitude cyclones over the Northeast United States is of great interest given the potential catastrophic consequences. For example, coastal areas of the Northeast United States are extremely vulnerable to storm surge, with the problem likely to become worse as the sea level rises during
