What is it about?
We use the WRF model to simulate a special case of sea breeze front over a montainous island. Five optional boundary layer schemes of this model are tested to obtain a preferred one in comparison to observation data at three meteorological stations. Numerical simulation results are used to interpret the evolution and development of the sea breeze, reproducing the surface observations, and providing three-dimensional structures

Why is it important?
The combination of shallow convection triggered by sea breezes close to a mountainous range at approximately 30° latitude has yet to receive academic attention. In addition, potential interactions with the trade-wind inversion, which limits free convection, are yet unexplored.
