et al. 2018 ; Pettersen et al. 2020 ). Deeper cloud structures that are characteristic of midlatitude winter cyclones are generally easier for PMWs to detect due to strong scattering signals from ice particles and higher reflectivity values that can be detected by radars with reduced sensitivity. Shallow snowfall, however, presents unique PMW detection complexities at higher latitudes since its radiative signal can be difficult to discern over snow-covered surfaces. Depending on radar

1. Introduction and motivation Variability in precipitation typology affects vertical water and energy fluxes though the associated precipitation structure, dynamics, microphysical processes, and latent heat release. The distribution of convective and stratiform precipitation impacts Earth’s radiative properties and atmospheric circulation. While the differences in microphysical processes and dynamics in convective and stratiform systems are well documented in the literature (e.g., Houze 1997
