Subtitle: Added value in convection-permitting WRF climate simulations for central Europe
Description(s):Abstract: High-resolution regional climate models with a more detailed representation of heterogeneous land surface properties, as well as an explicit treatment of deep convection can lead to an improved simulation of the climate system at the local scale. Added value is found especially at the sub-daily scale in the reproduction of intensity, diurnal cycle and spatial extent of precipitation. In this study, results from 10 years of convection-permitting WRF hindcast simulations at 3 km spatial resolution for a central European model domain are analyzed. The 3 km-resolved domain is nested into the pan-European Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) EUR-11 (12 km) model grid, driven by ERA-Interim reanalysis data. The simulated time spans (1992-1995, 2002-2003, 2010-2013) cover much of the variability of central European weather conditions. Results from both resolutions are compared with each other and evaluated against high-resolution reanalysis data and gridded observations. Hourly precipitation data over three regions with a very moderate, low mountain and high mountain topography are compared. For different seasons precipitation exhibits clear differences between the simulations. Statistics of the 3 km simulations show an added value in the reproduction of extremes. Largest differences occur during the summer months, when convective precipitation is dominant.
