Abstract

Detailed hourly precipitation patterns are analyzed for two major winter U.S. east coast storms that exhibited considerable mesoscale features. Pronounced spatial and temporal continuity is noted for individual convective rainfalls within the cold air. Such features can also be tracked in the wind and pressure fields. Finally, some thoughts are offered on the possible dynamic significance of organized mesoscale precipitation patterns, along with comments relevant to the forecasting of such patterns.
