A high-resolution insight in the flow patterns is necessary for the study of various urban to regional scale phenomena. In this study the applicability of nonhydrostatic mesoscale model MEMO version 6 to the greater Zagreb area under summertime anticyclonic weather conditions is evaluated. Results show that MEMO is able to simulate mesoscale wind flow reasonably well. Simulated wind fields gave a detailed illustration of the up- and down-slope circulation generated on south-facing slopes of the Medvednica Mountain. However, daytime surface wind speeds seem to be better predicted than the nighttime ones. Therefore, a further investigation related to the choice of some of the input model parameters is needed.
