We extend our study for the warm cloud model in [13] to the analysis of a more general cloud model including the ice microphysics in [28]. The moisture variables comprise water vapor, cloud condensates (cloud water, cloud ice), and cloud precipitations (rain, snow), with respective mass ratios $ q_v $, $ q_c $ and $ q_p $. A typical assumption in [13] for the calculation of condensation rate is that the warm clouds are exactly at water saturation with no supersaturation in general. When the ice microphysics are included, the situation becomes more complicated. We have to consider both the saturation mixing ratio with respect to water ($ q_{vw} $) and the saturation with respect to ice ($ q_{vi} $) when the temperature $ T $ is below the freezing point $ T_w $ but above the threshold $ T_i $ for homogeneous ice nucleation. A remedy, acceptable from the physical and mathematical viewpoints, is to define the overall saturation mixing ratio $ q_{vs} $ as a convex combination of $ q_{vw} $ and $ q_{vi} $. Under this setting, supersaturation can still be avoided and we have the constraint $ q_v \le q_{vs} $ with $ q_{vs} $ depending itself on the state. Mathematically, we are led to a system of equations and inequations involving some quasi-variational inequalities for which we prove the global existence and regularity of solutions.

Figure 1.  In the first simulation, we have a single mountain of height 2500 meters. The amount of snow $ q_s $ is measured in $ \text{g}\cdot \text{kg}^{-1} $. Brighter color indicates higher quantity (i.e., more snow) in the contour plots. Solid deep blue represents total absence of snow. The dashed red line shows the separation between rain and snow. We can see that the area that receives the most snow is the part of the atmosphere slightly to the left of the peak above the mountain. Note that the air flows from left to right. These results are coherent with the physical context
Figure 2.  In the second simulation, there are two mountains of heights 2500 m and 1500 m with the taller mountain on the left. The amount of snow $ q_s $ is measured in $ \text{g}\cdot \text{kg}^{-1} $. Brighter color indicates higher quantity of snow. Solid deep blue represents total absence of snow. The dashed red line shows the separation between rain and snow. The air flows from left to right as before. In this simulation, the taller mountain on the left blocks the passing of moist, resulting in less snow around the lower mountain on the right. These results are coherent with the physical context
Figure 3.  In the third simulation, we have two mountains of heights 1500 m and 2500 m with the taller mountain on the \emph{right}. The amount of snow $ q_s $ is measured in $ \text{g}\cdot \text{kg}^{-1} $ and brighter color indicates higher quantity of snow. Solid deep blue represents total absence of snow. The dashed red line shows the separation between rain and snow. The air flows from left to right as before. In this simulation, there is snow in the atmosphere above both mountains, as the mountain on the left does not block as much moist as in the previous simulation. These results are also coherent with the physical context
