The Canadian Mesoscale Compressible Community Model (MC2) was run at the University of British Columbia (UBC) to produce high-resolution weather forecasts for the Okanagan and Kamloops regions. Although five one-way nesting levels were used (with grid spacings of 108, 36, 12, 4, and 2 km) to make the forecasts, only the two finest grids were the focus of this study. Three periods were forecast: a 2-month operational, real-time period (1 February - 31 March 2003), and two case study periods (summer: 12 – 26 June 2002, and winter: 29 January – 10 February 2003). These periods were selected by WLAP to allow comparison with other model runs and with special field data, with the strategic goal ofcreating higher-quality meteorological input to air-quality models. Research was conducted toward developing an even higher-resolution modelcalled the Weather-Fire Integrated System (WFIS). The WFIS model was run with two nests: 2 km and 1 km grid spacing. The 2 km nest received its initial and boundary conditions from t
