high terrain, and in the lee of the Olympic Mountains. Four scanning dual-polarization Doppler radars were deployed to observe the precipitation upwind of, over, and downwind of the mountains. These radars were operated in RHI sector mode to optimize the vertical resolution and thus map comprehensively kinematic and microphysical processes. WSR-88Ds at Langley Hill and Camano Island, Washington, provided horizontal context for the specialized research radars. Soundings were enhanced with frequent
