Short summary
We present a novel set of atmospheric simulations designed to address changes in high-impact weather events. We simulate 10 years under current and projected late 21st century climate conditions. Our model reasonably replicates present-day climate features, reproduces features of climate change that are expected from global climate models, and captures smaller-scale, high-impact weather events. We anticipate these simulations will have great value in understanding changes in extreme weather.
