midlatitudes. They are thousands of kilometers long and, on average, only 400 km wide; 75% of the water vapor transport occurs below 2.25-km altitude. ARs produce extreme precipitation in coastal regions because they transport large quantities of water vapor and comprise almost ideal conditions for producing heavy orographic rains and flooding when they encounter mountains. Although the dominant precipitation forcing mechanism in the majority of West Coast extreme precipitation events is orographic lifting
