feedback between physical processes and large-scale dynamics in the WAM. Assimilation of precipitation-sensitive radiances impacts the horizontal and vertical distribution of clouds as well as the temporal evolution. For instance more frequent convective storms may be associated with a larger population of high-top clouds, which in turn may correspond to a lower outgoing longwave radiation. We use a high-resolution infrared radiance dataset from merged geostationary satellites to examine whether the

. 2012 , 2014 ; S. V. Kumar et al. 2014 ; Zhao et al. 2016 ). The family of soil moisture data assimilation methods uses prescribed atmospheric forcing (e.g., precipitation and downward radiation) and updates only selected land surface states, which often include soil moisture and temperature profiles. More recently, Rasmy et al. (2011 , 2012) developed a WRF-based system that is capable of updating the state of soil moisture, cloud liquid water, water vapor, rain, and snow through the
