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

). This system is also in the process of testing IMERG precipitation estimates. GFMS couples the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) land surface model ( Liang et al. 1994 ) and the Dominant River Tracing Routing (DRTR) model to form the Dominant River routing Integrated with VIC Environment (DRIVE) modeling system. To establish percentile thresholds for flood detection within the GFMS system, the DRIVE model was run retrospectively for 15 years using the TMPA record to provide a history of water
