5 INTRODUCTION Taiwan suffers from heavy rains and flood disasters caused by TCs each year. Because of the complex topographic features and their interactions with TCs. The predictability of rainfall associated with TCs is strongly dependent on an accurate forecast of the TC track, which may be significantly deflected by the complex high topography. The southwesterly monsoon flow is believed to be responsible for supplying large amounts of moisture to the TC environments during the monsoon season. However, monsoon plays in the heavy rainfall is difficult to elucidate since the monsoon is a large-scale system, acting as a background environment.

6 Z10[Zhang et al. 2010]: Examined the predictability of Morakot with a cloud-resolving ensemble initialized with analysis and flow-dependent perturbations obtained from a real time global ensemble data assimilation (EDA) system. And they were able to predict this record-breaking rainfall event. F11[Fang et al. 2011]: Found that the orography is crucial in determining the structure, intensity, and variability of Morakot’s rainfall. Both of them concluded that the forecasting of extreme rainfall events such as Morakot would benefit from probabilistic prediction provided by a high-resolution mesoscale ensemble forecast system.

7 The primary focuses of the current study are (1) Relationship between predictability of the typhoon track and precipitation. (2) Enhancement of orographically induced rainfall. (3) Enteractions between the southwest monsoon and Morakot.

10 OVERVIEW OF MORAKOT AND ERFORMANCE OF THE WRF CONTROL AND REFERENCE SIMULATIONS 2 August 2009 (tropical depression) 5 August (T.C) 7 August (945hPa)(before landfall) Effects on Taiwan lasted from 6 to 10 August Made landfall at 1800 UTC 7 August and August 11 aparted to China The strongest rainfall occurred between 0000 UTC 8 August and 0000 UTC 9 August (Z10; Hong et al. 2010; F11).

13 SENSITIVITY OF THE RAINFALL TO MORAKOT’S TRACK NAPE ( Normalized absolute precipitation error ) N - the total number of grid points with precipitation in either the observation and/or the simulation. R i - the precipitation in an ensemble member. R o i - the precipitation in an observation. A smaller value of NAPE indicates a better forecast of precipitation.

14 a) Ensemble-based analysis The members with good track forecasts also produced good rainfall forecasts. [Z10] Track error: distance between the positions of the ensemble member and best-track observations. (averaged from the 3-h a prior and posterior to landfall time.) NAPE: 72-h accumulated precipitation error. (from 0000UTC6 Aug to 0000UTC9 Aug) The accuracy of the quantitative precipitation forecast (QPF) for Morakot is closely related to the predictability of its track.

19 the vertical wind shear can influence the storm motion and the distribution of associated convection (Corbosiero and Molinari 2002, 2003;Cecil 2007; Gao et al. 2009). The rainfallmay also appear more substantial on the downshear left if the falling hydrometers in this sector are advected by the TC’s cyclonic circulation (e.g., Frank and Ritchie 1999).

26 THE MONSOON–TYPHOON INTERACTION The southwest monsoon is a large-scale system that is believed to have significant impacts on the development of tropical cyclones in the northwest PacificOcean (Carr and Elsberry 1995; Briegel and Frank 1997; Chen et al. 2004; Wu et al. 2011). Lee et al. (2011) and Chien and Kuo (2011) highlighted the convergence of the typhoon circulation with the monsoon flow as an important factor for creating a quasi-stationary zonal convective band, which induced the heavy rainfall over Taiwan. Nguyen and Chen (2011) documented that the combined circulations associated with the tropical storms and monsoon gyre brought in moisture-laden flows toward the western slopes of southern Taiwan that result in heavy rainfall. Wuet al. (2011) showed thatMorakot coincided with a quasi-biweekly oscillation and the Madden–Julianoscillation, which enhanced the synoptic-scale southwesterly winds of Morakot and thus decreased its westward movement, leading to a long residence time in thevicinity of Taiwan.

28 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS Good rainfall forecast foremost requires good track forecast. The rainfall forecast will be greatly degraded if the island is moved away from the typhoon’s path (MOVE00 versus CNTL00) while the forecast will improve immensely if the island is relocated to the direct path of the storm (MOVE54 versus CNTL54).

29 The impacts of the island topography on rainfall intensity and distribution were then examined through a series of sensitivity experiments that differ from the three reference simulations (CNTL) by HALF,LAND and OCEAN These sensitivity experiments show that (i) The presence of Taiwan leads to the redistribution of rainfall from the ocean to the island but does not necessarily extract more total water from the atmosphere. (ii) It is primarily the island topography, not the land interaction, that causes the redistribution of the rainfall. (iii) The impact of the topography is by no means a linear function of terrain height or terrain slope.

30 The strength of the southwesterly monsoon gyre could be strongly enhanced by the approaching typhoon circulation, which leads to stronger convergence and moisture transport near Taiwan. These sensitivity experiments show that the interaction between the typhoon and topography, rather than the location of the monsoon flow, contribute the most to the heavy rainfall caused by Morakot.
