The capability of the Climate extension of the Weather Research and Forecasting (CWRF) model in simulating the 1991 and 1998 summer floods in China is evaluated with 4-month continuous integrations as driven by the NCEP/NCAR observational reanalysis. It is shown that CWRF has a pronounced downscaling skill, capturing the key characteristics in the spatial patterns and temporal evolutions of precipitation in both severe anomalous monsoon cases. The result gives a high perspective for future CWRF applications in understanding and predicting China monsoon variability.
