static stability profiles in Fig. 5 both confirm stable stratification during these three prefrontal periods and veering low-level flow in the 1–3-km layer, conditions that were conducive to blocked or deflected low-level flow. High values of integrated vapor transport (IVT; 500–600 kg m −1 s −1 ) and 20–30 m s −1 flow at 925 hPa ( Table 3 ) indicate strong synoptic-scale forcing. The greatest variability between cases is seen in the melting-level height, as the lower 500-hPa heights and more

campaigns were utilized. The first dataset includes the dual-polarization WSR-88D observations from the Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma (KVNX), and the rain gauge measurements during the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E) ( Jensen et al. 2016 ). The second dataset includes the radar measurements from the dual-polarization WSR-88D at Langley Hill, Washington (KLGX), and the rain gauge observations during the Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEx) ( Houze et al. 2017 ). The two
