, the Met Office and the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) operate nonhydrostatic models without parameterized convection at horizontal grid spacings of 1.5 ( Tang et al. 2013 ) and 2 km ( Hara et al. 2013 ), respectively. However, computational limitations compel both agencies to use initial conditions supplied by three-dimensional variational data assimilation systems (3D-Var). For research purposes, most studies have used initial conditions that are downscaled from operational NWPs. Because heavy
