; Hou et al. 2014 ) core satellite. Our study focuses on atmospheric rivers (ARs) and rainfall during the IFloodS period. ARs are narrow (less than 400 km in width) and long (1000+ km in length) regions in the lower levels of the troposphere that transport large amounts of water vapor from the tropics and extratropics ( Newell et al. 1992 ; Newell and Zhu 1994 ). In extratropical cyclones, ARs generally form in the warm sector in the presence of low-level jets (LLJs) ahead of cold fronts. Because
