, and along 119°E, representing the eastern part of front. The θ se and moisture flux were calculated by using NCEP–NCAR reanalysis data. Here, θ se is defined by lifting an air parcel upward along a moist pseudo-adiabatic trajectory, extracting all water vapor, and returning adiabatically to the surface ( Tao 1980 ), which can be calculated as θ se = T (1000/ P ) R d / c p exp( Lq / c p T ), where T , q , and L are the temperature, specific humidity, and latent heat, respectively; and
