clouds of extratropical cyclones passing over the windward slopes, high terrain, and lee side of the Olympic Mountains. Observations on the western side of the Olympic Peninsula were concentrated within and near the Quinault River valley, a very wet drainage on the windward side of the Olympic Mountains ( Fig. 1 ). A secondary focus of observations was the Chehalis River valley lying to the south of the Olympic Mountains. On two occasions, when the primary precipitation occurrence was in the Chehalis

overpass is such that a single scan from the DPR (row of pixels with the same observation time) is in near-perfect alignment with the 230°/50° RHI from the NPOL and D3R (note the NPOL 50° RHI line is perpendicular to the DPR swath lines in Fig. 4b ). For this example, we will consider variations in the vertical profile along this line, extending up the Quinault River Valley. Fig . 4. Overview of 3 Dec 2015 OLYMPEX GPM overpass case.
