; Skofronick-Jackson et al. 2017 ), the OLYMPEX field program was conducted during the winter of 2015/16. A variety of midlatitude frontal systems were sampled during OLYMPEX by an extensive collection of satellite, aircraft, surface, and radar observations that provided a comprehensive microphysical description of these systems. Additional details of the OLYMPEX field campaign are found in Houze et al. (2017) . Ice microphysics impact the fidelity of simulated orographic precipitation (e.g., Hobbs et al

Juan de Fuca to the north, and Puget Sound to the east (see Fig. 1 ). Elevations range from sea level to 2427 m at the top of Mt. Olympus in the interior of the Peninsula. Precipitation in this area is winter dominant, with over 80% of the annual total (on average over our domain) falling between October and April. The southwestern and western slopes of the Olympic Mountains are covered by dense temperate rain forest and receive plentiful winter precipitation due to orographic enhancement of
