Forecasting model (WRF-ARW) is employed in this paper. A single, fixed grid with a horizontal resolution of 21 km and 41 vertical levels is used. The domains for the two TC cases are chosen such that all synoptic targets are included: 8946 km × 7056 km for Typhoon Sinlaku and 6510 km × 5880 km for Hurricane Ike. The following physics options are used: Rapid Radiative Transfer Model (RRTM) longwave radiation ( Mlawer et al. 1997 ; Iacono et al. 2000 ), Dudhia shortwave radiation ( Dudhia 1989 ), WRF

More details on ERA-Interim are available from Uppala et al. (2008) . d. NCEP Climate Forecast System The CFS is a coupled atmosphere–ocean model. The atmospheric component of the CFS is the 2003 version of the NCEP operational atmospheric GFS model with a spectral truncation of 62 waves (T62) in the horizontal (approximately
