1996 ; Weckwerth et al. 1996 ; Weckwerth 2000 ; Lin et al. 2011 ). Forecasters have noted the value of real-time GPS precipitable water vapor (PWV) observations in detecting rapid moisture increases to improve their high-impact weather forecasting skill (e.g., Moore et al. 2015 ). When humidity profiles from a microwave radiometer profiler (MWRP) and Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI; Knuteson et al. 2004a , b ) were assimilated, along with temperature and wind profiles

1984 ); the radome, especially a wet radome, or a wet antenna can affect the microwaves; ground clutter from sidelobes can contaminate the radar signals; and the antenna shape, when pointing vertically as compared to pointing horizontally, may be different. Other issues, such as receiver saturation or hardware and signal processing errors, can also bias measurements. Despite all this, most of these possible error sources can be mitigated through careful measurements and by rotating the vertically
