inaccuracies of the NWP model like parameterization, spatial and temporal discretization, the imperfect use of boundary conditions, and unrepresented physical and dynamical processes ( Lahoz et al. 2010 ; Torn and Davis 2012 ; Romine et al. 2013 ). The observation biases involve instrument error (e.g., poor calibration), approximations in forward operator and data processing such as the radiative transfer model or cloud detection ( Auligné et al. 2007 ). This creates a complex bias depending on, for

shallow cloud transition is primarily dependent upon the ratio of surface latent heat fluxes to cloud-top longwave radiative cooling ( Krueger et al. 1995 ; Bretherton and Wyant 1997 ). More recent research has focused on articulating the pace of the transition. One comprehensive analysis of Lagrangian trajectories based on reanalyses and satellite observations concluded that changes in the underlying sea surface temperature, more so than in the atmosphere, dominate the speed of the cloud transition
