temperature deficit in the slope-inversion layer, θ 0 is a reference potential temperature above the inversion, and α is the slope angle. Using typical values for the east slope of Granite Mountain during the period between 1900 and 2200 MST [ d j = 30 m, h c = 0.3 m, = −0.05 m 2 s −2 , α = 2.5°, and Δ θ max / θ 0 = 0.03], the above expression results in a jet maximum height of 4.5 m, which is in good agreement with the observations.
