is underestimating reflectivity in ice-producing regions aloft, though likely not substantially, because the observed mean profiles decrease with altitude and do not exceed 30 dB. 4. Conclusions The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite provides a powerful tool for evaluating moist physics in numerical weather prediction models, particularly over water and complex terrain where observations are difficult to acquire. In this study, we use observations from the GPM Microwave Imager (GMI

future work. Fig . 1. Idealized diagram of the sectors of an extratropical cyclone passing over the Olympic Mountains. Reproduced from Houze et al. (2017) . It is well known that the precipitation associated with these landfalling extratropical storms is enhanced on the windward slopes of west-coastal mountains. Neiman et al. (2002) used wind profiler observations to show that the rain rate on windward slopes in the California coastal range is highly correlated with the intensity of unblocked low
