of remote sensing profilers, like PISAs deployed during PECAN, have aided in recent NCI studies (e.g., Wilson et al. 2018 ). A nationwide network of these systems ( National Research Council 2009 ) should have mesoscale spacings of ∼50 km to provide critical thermodynamic and wind observations to be used for enhanced understanding, for data assimilation and for improving convective weather forecast skill. A recent experiment, Land–Atmosphere Feedback Experiment (LAFE; Wulfmeyer et al. 2018
