Abstract

A three-dimensional numerical mesoscale model has been applied over the irregular terrain of northern Israel in order to simulate the local surface climate pattern associated with typical July stagnate synoptic meteorological conditions. Comparison of model-evaluated surface flow and temperature fields against observed data illustrate the role in which mesoscale models can be used in order to provide additional insight into the analyses of persistent regional climatological patterns.
