events and progressively decreases in WS and PF events. While also follows the same basic trend as , its sensitivity to frontal type is weaker: for WS (0.11) is only slightly larger than that for WF (0.09), suggesting a similar degree of windward enhancement. Thus, the large differences in between these cases are mainly attributable to stronger leeside precipitation suppression in WF events. This suppression is promoted by and large , which favors large-amplitude mountain wave breaking and

observed and simulated precipitation (not shown). The physics options included the Eta similarity ( Janjić 1990 ), Noah model ( Tewari et al. 2004 ), and Mellor–Yamada–Janjić ( Janjić 1994 ) schemes for the surface layer, land surface, and planetary boundary layer (PBL), respectively, along with the Grell–Freitas ensemble cumulus parameterization (9 km grid only; Grell and Freitas 2014 ) and the Rapid Radiative Transfer Model for GCMs (RRTMG; Iacono et al. 2008 ). Same model options were selected for
