potential future changes in NHJ amplitude and persistence have led to a recent surge in research interest in NHJ climatology ( Rikus 2015 ; Woollings et al. 2014 ). This interest is not limited to the meteorological and climate modeling community but has permeated into research fields that study the impact of climate and future climate change on ecosystem and societal dynamics (e.g., Stark et al. 2016 ). However, the NHJ is a complex system of thousands of kilometers in length and hundreds of

1. Introduction It is well known that human-induced landscape changes have many impacts on local and regional-scale climate. Changes due to urbanization directly impact the nature of the surface and atmospheric properties of a region by altering the natural energy and hydrologic balances ( Oke 1984 ; Schmid and Oke 1992 ). The most documented effect linked to urbanization is the urban heat island (UHI), in which the air above the urban canopy is usually warmer than the air in the rural
