in this evaluation assimilate precipitation estimates from radar (over the United States only), while the GFS does not assimilate rainfall information directly. Therefore, our examination yields information about the performance of the model physics for each model and, in particular, the convective precipitation parameterization schemes since the period of this study occurs during the convective season over the United States c.

viewpoint of model improvement, it is important to examine how the diagnostic features and their variations can be captured by a numerical model in its case-by-case predictions. This study intends to evaluate the fifth-generation Pennsylvania State University–National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesoscale Model’s (MM5) capabilities and limitations in reproducing intraseasonal variabilities in the NAM precipitation in the context of the 2004 monsoon season. Studies for the past two decades have

close to normal. The work presented here is a small portion of a much larger study that aims to determine the impact of all of these rain-bearing transient systems on the monsoon in northern Mexico. These climatologies are designed to provide NAME researchers with benchmarks to assess model performance in terms of success in generating a realistic set of transient systems in monsoon experiments and in terms of being able to replicate the typical monsoon rainfall associated with each type of

results of this study contribute to a better understanding about the role of surface cover on monsoon dynamics and land–atmosphere feedbacks. The data will be important for evaluating and improving the performance of hydrometeorological models in the region. This knowledge will enable us to give answers to very practical questions about the impact of land cover changes on weather systems. For instance, what would be the consequences if the TDF and desert shrub are replaced by Buffel grass
