Short summary
This article proposes a methodological framework for the model evaluation of high-resolution urban climate simulations and demonstrates its effectiveness with a case study in a fast-urbanizing area (Shenzhen and Hong Kong SAR, China). It is intended to (again) remind urban climate modellers of the necessity of conducting systematic model evaluations in urban-scale climatology modelling and reduce ambiguous or arbitrary modelling practices.
