vapor flux, and thermodynamic properties focus on this scale. It has been well documented that flooding events in the central United States are concentrated in late spring and early summer ( Wang and Chen 2009 ; Villarini et al. 2011a , b ; Smith et al. 2013 ) and that water vapor transported from the tropics is an important moisture source for precipitation and thus flooding events ( Rasmusson 1967 , 1968 , 1971 ; Trenberth and Guillemot 1996 ; Dirmeyer and Kinter 2010 ; Lavers and Villarini

two-stream (upward and downward fluxes) approach is used for the shortwave and longwave radiative flux calculations ( Chou and Suarez 1999 ) and its explicit interactions with clouds (microphysics). In addition, the numerical simulations use the Goddard three-class ice (3ICE) scheme ( Lang et al. 2011 ), which prognoses three types of ice hydrometeor species (i.e., cloud ice, snow, and graupel).
