rely on radar rainfall estimates for flood forecasting and the majority of the comparative studies use rain gauges as a reference ( Cunha et al. 2013 ). The accuracy of Z H / Z DR couples should therefore independently be evaluated prior to radar rainfall estimation. The envelope of Z H / Z DR presented here could be used a reference in these studies. Reflectivities Z H and Z DR are vital radar measurements for radar rainfall mapping. The study presented here showed the presence of surface

for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) that have been collocated to the CloudSat radar profiles. The CloudSat snowfall data were produced via a retrieval method similar to that used by the CloudSat 2C-SNOW-PROFILE (2C-SP) version release 4 (R04) algorithm ( Wood et al. 2013 ), but modified to perform retrievals above the melting layer when rain or mixed-phase precipitation is reaching the surface. As does the unmodified algorithm, this 2C-SP-mod retrieval algorithm estimates vertical
