Station is Cream Ridge in central New Jersey. Mesonet observations are plotted in green and WRF 10 meter winds for station location are plotted in black. Landfall time is 00Z at the beginning of the third day. Observations are generally more feature-rich than the WRF simulation on an hourly time scale. As shown in this example, the rise and fall of wind speed during the landfall period is much more peaked in the observations than for WRF, which is a common behavior for most of the stations.
