; Ding 1992 ), resulting in heavy rain and flash floods ( Ding 1992 ; Zhao et al. 2004 ). In addition to the quasi-stationary front, the trough of the westerlies to the south of the Tibetan Plateau also played an important role in this pattern by transporting warm air and moisture to southern China. This paper studies the following three questions about the freezing precipitation during 2008 in China: 1) Is the 20-day-long persistence of the freezing precipitation event caused by the stable and

storm and its predecessors were at Dodge City, Kansas (DDC; Fig. 3a ) and Lamont, Oklahoma (LMN; Fig. 3b ), at 0000 UTC. The DDC sounding was characteristic of the air mass behind the dryline; the boundary layer was dry adiabatic and deep, and extended up to about 625 hPa; the moisture was nearly well mixed in this layer. It is seen from the surface map near the time of the sounding ( Fig. 2c ) that the dryline was located somewhere east of DDC. Based on the author’s observations southeast of DDC
