Short summary
The study shows that lifted temperature minimum can be detected under calm conditions during the day-night transition, several hours earlier than reported in previous work. These conditions are fulfilled under weak synoptic forcing during local flow shifts associated with a mountain-plain complex orography. Under these special conditions, turbulence and radiation becomes a crucial parameter in determining the ideal conditions for observing LTM measurements.
