winter. We also note that all the distant landfalling TCs (not traversing the PRB) that resulted in critical-level events were TY categories and at least TS category below critical-level floods. Other distant landfalling TCs moving north and south of the PRB in northeast and southwest monsoon season, respectively, did not lead to flooding events. Moisture transport to TCs from distant ocean sources makes up a large proportion of a TCs’ total precipitable water ( Kudo et al. 2014 ). This intrusion of

reasons. First, it is a relatively simple basin in terms of subsurface contributions. Shallow soils, steep topography, and negligible groundwater contribution during the cool season mean that accurate simulation of streamflow is largely dependent on the meteorological forcing. Second, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Hydrometeorology Testbed (HMT) program has maintained a dense network of meteorological stations that cover the basin ( Ralph et al. 2005 ). Third, the upper

and below), the 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-yr rainfall accumulations for northeastern Iowa are approximately 110, 150, 165, and 210 mm, respectively. For 48 h (see analyses below), the 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-yr rainfall accumulations are approximately 125, 165, 185, and 230 mm, respectively [based on National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) precipitation frequency atlas values; http://www.nws.noaa.gov/oh/hdsc/index.html ].

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

intensity of daily summer precipitation (see appendix F for a list of acronyms used throughout the paper). The NASH, also known as the Bermuda high, is a semipermanent high pressure system residing over the subtropical North Atlantic. It intensifies in the summer, when its western ridge extends into the CONUS, conveying moisture from ocean to land ( Gamble et al. 2008 ; Li et al. 2011 ; Li and Li 2013 ), while also impacting the track of tropical cyclones ( Kasahara 1959 ). In addition, from the

The application of collocation-based approaches to rainfall products is described in Mahfouf et al. (2007) , Wang et al. (2018) , and Massari et al. (2017

August 2017 approximately 815 km east of Barbados. It was classified as a tropical storm at 1800 UTC 17 August but degenerated into a tropical wave 48 h later in the Caribbean Sea. Regeneration began on 23 August 2017 followed by a rapid intensification up to the initial CONUS landfall on San Jose Island, Texas, at 0300 UTC 26 August with maximum sustained winds of 115 kt (59.2 m s −1 ) and an estimated minimum central pressure of 937 hPa. Harvey decelerated over Texas following landfall and looped

( Chagnon et al. 2004 ; Wang et al. 2009 ) hinted toward the existence of the dry advantage regime by satellite observation of shallow cloud occurrence over forested and deforested areas in the Amazon. A dry advantage regime was also documented through the sensitivity integration of a regional model under heat wave conditions in Europe ( Stéfanon et al. 2013 ). The relative humidity tendency equation used in EH04 is composed of an instantaneous surface evaporative term [evaporative fraction (EF)] and
