This work was funded by the Korea Meteorological Administration Research and Development Program under Grant CATER-2006-2204. A part of this work was done during the first author’s (S-Y. Hong) visit to NCAR, which was partly supported by NCAR. We are grateful to Tae-Young Lee, John Brown, and Joe Klemp for their interest and encouragement.
