and wind lidars over Europe (without an LLJ) to evaluate ECMWF forecast model performance, showing a model wet bias of 17%. Passive ground-based sensors such as the atmospheric emitted radiance interferometer (AERI; Turner and Löhnert 2014 ) have also contributed to studies of LLJ thermodynamics and interactions with the stable boundary layer ( Bonin et al. 2015 ; Toms et al. 2017 ; Johnson et al. 2018 ; Lin et al. 2019 ). These observational studies have been complemented by modeling studies

2006 ; Koch et al. 2008 ; Marsham et al. 2011 ). Whatever the dominant mechanism for the initiation, organization, and maintenance of deep convection at night across the Great Plains, weather and climate models poorly capture this nocturnal maximum (e.g., Surcel et al. 2010 ; Trenberth et al. 2003 ), and this may have implications downwind ( Stensrud 1996 ) and as far downstream as Europe ( Rodwell et al. 2013 ). Warm-season QPFs are relatively less accurate ( Fritsch and Carbone 2004 ), which
