not include prognostic soil moisture; the latent heat flux is determined by multiplying potential evaporation with the moisture availability). It should be noted that the low initial value of atmospheric moisture and the very dry soil precluded the formation of any clouds (except for some radiatively insignificant clouds in MM5). b. Models The following models were used in the intercomparison study: the Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS; Xue et al. 2000 , 2001 ), the Consortium for Small

well as potential temperature θ and Exner function π are marched forward in time with a split-time-level integration ( Klemp and Wilhelmson 1978 ). A full suite of physical processes are represented in the COAMPS simulations including the parameterization of the boundary layer, radiative transfer, and moist processes (see Hodur 1997 ). As with the linear Boussinesq system presented above, the model variables are staggered on a C grid. The metric terms are computed in an internally consistent
