Short summary
Simulations of the Indian summer monsoon by the cloud-permitting WRF model at gray-zone resolution (9 km) are described in this study, with a particular emphasis on the model ability to capture the monsoon intraseasonal oscillations (MISOs). When compared to simulations with coarser grid spacing (27 km) and using a cumulus scheme, the 9 km simulations reduce the biases in mean precipitation and produce more realistic low-frequency variability associated with MISOs.
