The article reexamines the validity of the conclusions presented by its authors (TR03) who examined the relative effects of subgrid-scale mixing and numerical filters in squall-line simulations in an idealized condition of a no-shear environment. It presents some new simulations with corrected subgrid mixing. The same experimental setup as that employed in TR03 is used in the present simulations. Here the authors examines only simulations using the subgrid parameterization scheme that predicts turbulent kinetic energy and performs simulations of the evolution of an initial line thermal in a no-shear environment.

    In high-resolution numerical simulations (using horizontal grid spacing less than ∼1 km), the convective region of squall lines will sometimes overturn as quasi-horizontal convective rolls. The authors study one case in detail using output from a simulation with 125-m grid spacing. The...

    On 8--9 March 1992, a long-lived squall line traversed the state of Kansas, producing hail and damaging winds. It was shown previously that this squall line was part of a synoptic-scale rainband 2000 km in length that was associated with a cold front aloft (CFA). The present study is concerned...
