Abstract : With the use of a 5-level model starting with a long wave barotropic initial disturbance, two forecasts over 12 days were computed, including and excluding skin friction. Within a period of a few days warm front, cold front, occlusion, warm front waves, cold front waves, new cyclones and anticyclones of different types are developing. Later on examples of frontolysis, cyclolysis and the disappearing of anticyclones are observed. Without skin friction the results do not look realistic, however, including skin friction the results simulate very closely a real weather development. (Author)
