For heavy precipitation, the Stretched_G's BIAS is insignificantly higher than the GFS's BIAS, which implies that the Stretched_G's configuration is still underoptimized for heavier precipitation intensity. Modifications to other physical parameterizations (including the planetary boundary layer parameterization) may be necessary at convection-permitting scales to address these issues.
Precipitation is generated after water vapour condenses in the atmosphere, and precipitation intensity is governed by the availability of atmospheric water vapour.
* Precipitation impacts such as changes in average annual precipitation, with some regions seeing more precipitation while others see less, generally wetter winters and drier summers, and increased precipitation intensity.
The measurable parameters of the compact weather sensor are air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed and wind direction, precipitation type, precipitation intensity and rainfall, UV index, the position of the sun, brightness and twilight and global radiation.
[14] focused on whether the change in precipitation intensity after a drought event in the Huang-Huai-Hai River Basin was larger than before.
This variation of ionic concentration might be related to the seasonal distribution of air-mass origins, precipitation intensity, and emissions of pollutants.
Precipitation intensity and duration are shown in Table 2, with distribution of the precipitation evenly.
He found that "(t)here is no evidence that global warming is influencing Texas coastal precipitation in the long term and little evidence that warmer than normal temperatures had any real impact on the precipitation intensity from this storm." CNN asked Bill Read, former director of the National Hurricane Center, whether man-made climate change was intensifying storms.
[[lambda].sub.i] is demand rate at which stormwater at point i receives service from drainage pipe, and it is relevant to precipitation intensity [f.sub.i] at point i.
The Offshore Precipitation Capability (OPC) is a system designed to address this lack of airspace situational awareness by providing "radarlike" depictions of precipitation intensity and storm height in regions that are outside weather radar coverage.
