Mesoscale Modeling of the Atmosphere edited by Roger Pielke.

This book provides an overview of several components of mesoscale modeling: boundary conditions, subgrid-scale parameterization, moisture processes, and radiation. Also included are mesoscale model comparisons using data from the U.S. Army's Project WIND (Winds in Non-uniform Domains).
