). A good understanding of the processes producing freezing precipitation requires a thorough knowledge of the meteorological conditions at the surface and upper levels of the atmosphere. Rauber et al. (1994) reported a severe 20-h FZRA event over the midwestern United States from 14 to 15 February 1990 that occurred to the north of a slow-moving warm front. The past studies of the previously mentioned three categories have firmly established the two microphysical mechanisms, namely

, the SeaWinds Scatterometer on the Quick Scatterometer (QuikSCAT) satellite can also provide accurate observations of sea surface vector winds (e.g., Liu et al. 1998 , 2000 ; Chelton et al. 2004 ). These high-quality satellite data can now resolve TIW-related mesoscale signals both in the atmosphere and in the ocean. In particular, satellite-based high-resolution measurements have shown observational evidence of mesoscale air–sea coupling related to TIWs in the eastern tropical oceans (e
