increased in their CRM simulations over two Mediterranean islands. Evaluation of the Froude number (Fr) corroborates changes in precipitation location ( Fig. 6 ) due to the inland extent of the sea breeze ( Figs. 8 – 10 ). The Froude number helps determine whether impinging flow on a barrier (e.g., mountain) will pass over or be blocked by the barrier. It is defined as Fr = U / NH , where U is the cross-barrier flow, N is the Brunt–Väisälä frequency, and H is the height of the barrier. For U
