of the presence of warm moist air and strong winds, under suitable lifting mechanisms (e.g., orographic, frontal, convective, and dynamic) ARs can lead to heavy rainfall events. These events have been linked to intense rainfall and flooding over many midlatitude regions, in particular over Europe (see, e.g., Lavers et al. 2011 , 2012 ; Lavers and Villarini 2013a ) and the U.S. West Coast ( Ralph et al. 2004 , 2006 ; Neiman et al. 2008 ). Apart from being a major flood agent, ARs can bring

-based observations to retrievals from satellites. The European Space Agency’s Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite mission was launched in 2009 with the purpose of measuring sea surface salinity over the world’s oceans and surface soil moisture over land ( Kerr et al. 2010 ). The recently launched Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) utilizes a passive L-band radiometer combined with active L-band radar ( Entekhabi et al. 2010
