COMET_CASE_013: COMET Case Study 013: S. California Floods/Florida Tornadoes


A strong winter storm system moved over Southern California and brought heavy rain as tropical moisture fed into the system.At the same time, an intense storm system moved across Florida with tornadoes forming over the central part of the state.


This case was built to highlight the performance of the Eta model in predicting the Southern California storm and to examine the need for high-resolution models in areas of complex terrain.
