Identification of error sources in convective planetary boundary layer cloud forecasts using SIRTA observations

Abstract : In this study, errors in cloud base height predicted by two numerical weather prediction models is evaluated using observations from the French instrumented site SIRTA. Results show that a significant portion of the error is due to errors in predicted surface relative humidity. These errors are in turn thought to be caused by the convection schemes.
