The first space-based precipitation radar (PR) was launched aboard the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) in 1997. TRMM is a joint mission between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall. In addition to PR, other precipitation-related instruments include the TRMM Microwave

forced upslope due to coastal orography ( Ralph et al. 2006 ; Neiman et al. 2011 ). The importance of ARs to water supply and flood danger has motivated observational campaigns to understand the processes that increase and decrease IWV. Previous observational campaigns (e.g., Neiman et al. 2014 , 2016 ) investigated ARs over the northeastern Pacific Ocean using in situ aircraft observations and dropsondes. While satellites can report the spatial distribution of IWV, only in situ measurements can

artifact of the assimilated observations as multiple fields in the global water budget become more stable in MERRA-2 during the same time frame as a result of the introduction of advanced microwave radiances ( Bosilovich et al. 2017 ). Noticeably suppressed counts of ARs occur in 1985, 1988, and 2014, all years with neutral ENSO or weak La Niña conditions. There is no indication that the frequency of ARs along the Washington coast has changed over time. Fig . 2. Time series of (a) the number of ARs

The GPM mission consists of the Core Observatory ( CO ) deployed in February 2014 by NASA and JAXA, and a constellation of satellites from partner agencies. The CO mainly carries the GPM Microwave Imager and the Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar, and provides high-resolution information about precipitation intensity, type, and micro and macro structures (e.g., Hou et al. 2014 ; Skofronick-Jackson et al. 2017 ). Further, the CO serves as a reference to intercalibrate observations from a

observations from more than 6500 gauge stations and the inverse distance weighting method ( Pai et al. 2014 ). Gridded precipitation from the IMD is widely used for hydroclimatic studies in India ( Mishra et al. 2014 ; Shah and Mishra 2016 ). We obtained monthly Terrestrial Water Storage Anomaly (TWSA) at 0.25° spatial resolution from Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), which is available from Centre for Space Research (CSR GRACE RL06 Mascon Solutions) for 2002 to 2016 ( Save 2019 ; Save et

Prediction Center's morphing method (CMORPH) and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Stage IV, are selected. CMORPH ( Joyce et al. 2004 ) combines estimates from low-orbiter satellite microwave observations with geostationary infrared data to produce global precipitation analyses at 3-hourly intervals and at 0.25° horizontal-grid resolution. CMORPH data are available over the domain of 60°S–60°N. Similarly, hourly data from NCEP Stage IV, produced by the National Weather Service

precipitation datasets ( Sun et al. 2018 ), such as interpolations based on station records, combining satellite and station observations, and climate modeling. However, most stations in the TP are located in the central and eastern part, and there is no single station situated above 4800 m in the western TP. Furthermore, precipitation records at high altitudes are always somehow problematic due to various limitations, such as precipitation under catchments ( Yang et al. 1998 ; Scaff et al. 2015 ; Pan et

assimilation. Assimilating unconventional observations of the satellite-based precipitation product based on the 4D-Var data assimilation method provides another possible way to improve the performance of a regional climate model for precipitation simulation ( Lin et al. 2015 ; Mahfouf et al. 2005 ; Pan et al. 2017 ; Yi et al. 2018b ). However, the impact of 4D-Var assimilation with precipitation observation on the accuracy of evaporation, which is also another important input in most hydrology models

based on observations is consistent with the available data for this storm, physical insight into the storm's dynamics and precipitation-producing processes can best be derived from a numerical model given the remote nature of the region and limited observations of the flash flood. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to provide such insight via a simulation with the Advanced Research Weather Research and Forecasting Model (ARW-WRF, hereafter just WRF; Skamarock et al. 2008 ) coupled with NASA
