We configure a satellite-supported version of WRF (version 3.6.1)33, 34 over four nested domains with spatial resolution of 13.5, 4.5, 1.5, and 1.5 km. The two inner domains include San Francisco and Sacramento metropolitan areas in NorCal and Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas in SoCal (Fig. 1). WRF is a state-of-the-art, fully compressible, non-hydrostatic, mesoscale numerical weather prediction model. To account for urban physical processes, WRF is coupled with a UCM35, 36.
