located at approximately 25 km from the CESAR site. In addition to these instruments, CESAR has multiple lidars and radiometers, an extensive radiation measurement site [Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN); see, e.g., Wang et al. 2009 ], and a 213-m-high tower in which profiles of several variables such as temperature and wind are measured. Aerosols are sampled at 60 m in this mast, and turbulent fluxes are measured on the site as well. Hydrological data (ditch discharges, groundwater levels

radiative forcing time series estimated from changes in surface reflectance following the method presented in Painter et al. (2007b) , which constitutes the long-term record of dust radiative forcing in the Colorado Rockies ( Painter et al. 2007b ). 2. Methods a. Forcing and validation measurements Following is a brief description of the relevant snow observations for radiative transfer model forcing and validation; a detailed description of the full dataset can be found in Skiles and Painter (2017

analysis focused on 19–22 September since these days incorporated the most intense precipitation. First, the precipitation from the urban simulation was compared with three sets of observations to ensure that the model adequately captured the dominant features of the storm event. The spatial and temporal distribution of the modeled rainfall was evaluated using the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Stage IV quantitative precipitation estimates (QPEs; Nelson et al. 2016 ). The NCEP

) Schematic map of the Seehornwald field site showing the location of the rail and linear array with reference to locations of radiometers from the distributed array on the forest floor. Filled points denote pyranometers and open points denote pyrgeometers. Radiometers in the distributed configuration are in blue and the linear configuration is in red. Green circles represent tree crown positions determined by aerial lidar data. Numbering of radiometers indicates those selected in the analysis with three

compare simulated spatial patterns of cyclonicity against satellite observations of clouds and rainfall. Barros et al. (2004 , 2006 ) noted the strong co-organization of the diurnal cycle of precipitation features and landform in the Himalayan range [contiguous regions of rainfall identified in the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Precipitation Radar (TRMM PR) data; Nesbitt et al. 2000 ]. The hypothesis they proposed is that the space–time distribution of such precipitation features is

component is driven by the VIL evolution in the atmospheric column. The RadVil formulation is inspired from the model proposed by Georgakakos and Bras (1984) , which summarizes the rainfall formation processes in the conceptual way of a reservoir model. This model was designed to be coupled with a hydrological model in order to forecast floods on catchments subject to flash flooding. Several versions of this model have been proposed according to available observations in order to estimate the water
