most noticeable impact on open water is reflected in water surface temperature ( Yan and Zheng 2015 ). Recent studies have focused on the relationship between ocean surface temperature and global climate change ( Chen et al. 2018 ; Carrillo et al. 2018 ; Yan et al. 2016 ; Shirvani et al. 2015 ), while there are relatively few studies on inland water surface temperature (IWST). According to a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and a National Science Foundation–funded study

water storage. The model was then initialized with spinup soil–vegetation states, and a 10-yr transient run from 2008 to 2017 was conducted using the offline atmospheric forcing data. The vegetation phenology (consisting of monthly data) was updated yearly based on the MODIS remote sensing product. The model was integrated at hourly frequency, and the outputs were generated at 5-day intervals. d.

the warm sector of extratropical cyclones coming off the Pacific Ocean ( Neiman et al. 2008 ). They are defined in a variety of ways, based upon their scale and intensity. Neiman et al. (2008) defined them as narrow plumes of integrated water vapor (IWV) exceeding 2 cm and over 2000 km long and less than 1000 km wide. They are also defined by integrated water vapor transport (IVT), with one common form of this equation given by Gao et al. (2015) : (1) IVT = ⁡ ( 1 g ∫ 1000 500 q u   d p ) 2

decreasing precipitation errors resulting from degraded spatial and temporal sampling, and therefore improve flash flood monitoring. Acknowledgments The authors thank Drs. J. J. Gourley and Zac Flamig for helpful discussions during the preparation of this manuscript; John Krause for processing polarimetric radar QPE; and Dr. Pierre Kirstetter for help on probabilistic approach. Funding was provided by the Spectrum Efficient National Surveillance Radar (SENSR) program and the NOAA/Office of Oceanic and

collected every 5–10 min with resolution 0.25 km in range and 0.5° in azimuth. The Digital Precipitation Array (DPA) QPE accumulation on the 4.7625-km Hydrologic Rainfall Analysis Projection (HRAP) grid was selected for the analysis after a NEXRAD QPE evaluation for GTA watersheds by Wijayarathne et al. (2020a) . National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather and Climate Toolkit (WCT), ArcGIS 10.6.1, MATLAB, and Python scripts were used for further processing of NEXRAD QPEs

MM (medium resolution in atmosphere and ocean) simulations (N216) have a horizontal resolution equivalent to approximately 60 km in the midlatitudes ( Roberts et al. 2019 ).

Notably, until 2018, only the ECMWF was coupled to an ocean wave and dynamic ocean circulation model while the other models only describe land and atmospheric processes. Table 1.

precipitation forecasts relative to observed rainfall fields derived from a calibrated radar product for two summer convection periods (hereafter called storm events). Subsequently, we investigate the distributed flood forecasting skill and its dependence with lead time and catchment scale for the ensemble rainfall forecasts. In addition, we investigate how precipitation errors are transmitted to streamflow uncertainty at internal watershed sites as a flood wave progresses downstream. For these events and

, or the historical and the future long-term mean daily precipitation, are similar for all the model averages produced. We would like to point out that there could be concern about using the TRMM precipitation data product over CONUS when there are other longer (arguably more reliable) in situ products available, such as CPC. However, for precipitation over the oceans and for higher temporal resolution, TRMM data can provide some benefits worth mentioning. These two advantages of TRMM will enable

would be time consuming. The parameters associated with the channel flow process, computed using the kinematic wave equation, were also not found to be sensitive. Previous VARS applications performed by Foulon et al. (2019) in two basins in southern Quebec yielded different results for the vertical water budget parameters. Z1 was shown to be the least sensitive soil layer thickness, while Z2 and Z3 were the second most and the most sensitive parameters, respectively. Also, the recession
